Make Yarn, Not War

I dyed 40 skeins of silk laceweight yarn on Saturday. It's one of my favorite jobs, something I always look forward to doing. It's all for sale on my Etsy store now - twisted, photographed, labeled and uploaded. Hint: Colors are MUCH better in real life than in the photos!

If you haven't ever used commercial yarn in your spinning, give it a try. Make a single ply of wool, or anything you have on hand, and ply that with a commercial yarn, like silk or wool laceweight. You can get different effects depending on the direction of twist - try it several ways. Send me a photo of your new artsy yarn and I'll post it here!

Happy Spinning!
