Guinevere



I love this yarn!!! I have spun two skeins of it, and one is reserved for me, to knit a beanie :)
As I was spinning it, the colours reminded me of Medieval gowns, tapestries and regalia, and as a big fan of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, I named this creation Guinevere.
One single is of variegated Corriedale, spun from pencil roving, and the other is a single of burgundy/cobalt blue merino, to make it self stripe. The colour changes will come approximately every 13yds of yarn.

I don't know if you have mentioned this before, buy what kind of wheel do you use?

I love the colourways. I need to start dyeing my own fibre

Very cool! Did you get yours from the seller in the Netherlands? I've heard good stuff about her so hopefully it will get here in great condition.

And I know who to ask if I need any tips!
