This week has been filled with dyeing, spinning, and weaving–as well as preparing for tomorrow’s Alabama Honey Festival in Owens Cross Roads, Alabama, where I’ll have a tent set up if it doesn’t rain us out.
Off the loom: Merino/Silk/Cashmere Autumn Plaid Scarf.
Off the wheel: “Carpo’s Sunset” custom colorway I’ve dyed for the upcoming North Alabama Yarn Skip (Oct 8-16th). Carpo was the goddess of Autumn, hence, the name. This is a Peruvian Highland wool roving dyed with professional acid fast dyes. It will be available in limited quantities at Hook a Frog Fiber & Fun during the event. This sample was spun from half of the 100g braid, so not much of the blue showed up in the finished 2-ply yarn.
