Playing with new Fibre ...
Things have been a bit bonkers round here because of birthdays, plus the weather has been rubbish, so it took me a few days to get around to dyeing it up!
But it was worth the wait, as I think it's taken the colour beautifully... I am really pleased!
I've split the colours out for test spinning... so I'll have one ply of the blues/greens, another of orange/yellow/lime and then I'll stash dive to choose a third solid ply.
It's spinning up really well too, very bouncy, no slippiness at all, so I think it's a fibre suitable for all ability levels.
It was dry enough today for me to take a sample of it to my local Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers meeting, and it got quite a response from all that saw it, which is always a good thing :)
We had a 'Spinning Wheel Speed Dating' event at guild today, a few members brought more unique/less popular wheels for others to try. I got to try and get a Frank Herring Saxony to work, but he was having none of it... little monkey! Great fun though !
I have a 40g dyed sample of the Ile de France to give away, lucky you :)
Just leave me a comment and you'll go into a hat to win the fibre sample and free postage off your next order from my etsy shop !
