New hand-dyes

Here are some yarns and roving that I hand-dyed this afternoon. The yarns/roving are still drying so I hope to have nicer pictures when they are dry. I will have names figured out soon as well. I love how the colors turned out! Well, tomorrow starts me back to work. My vacation is over but…

Girlfriends

Here is a glimpse of what I’ve spun up so far out of my roving from Three Waters Farm. The color way is called Girlfriends.

For the love of Fiber

Here are pics of the fiber I recently purchased from Three Waters Farm and Hanks in the Hood off of Etsy: I started spinning the Three Waters Farm last night and it is a mix of 50% Merino 30% Alpaca 20% Silk. I love how it is spinning up. My spinning is getting more consistent…

Field of Greens

Here is my skeined hand-dyed alpaca in a colorway I call “Field of Greens”. There are 2 skeins side by side with the smaller (left) yielding approximately 95 yds. and the larger (right) yielding approximately 100 yds. I hope to have this up in my Etsy shop once I have my hand-spun skeined and ready.

My first hand dyed attempt

Here is my first attempt at a kettle dyed yarn using food coloring. Overall, I am pleased. Next time I would probably have a more saturated color though by adding more coloring. A lovely green yarn just in time for St. Patty’s.
