On My Spindle

by Verónica

Remember the soft aquas and blues of the hand-dyed Silky Cashmerino I found in San Antonio?

It spins up very nicely.

Even though I wasn’t nearly done with the batch of blues, I could not resist this when I saw it.

It’s fittingly called “Fire and Ice” and this 4 ounce batt was prepared by my friends over at the Wooden Spinner. It’s made of merino, mohair, Angelina, Firestar and silk. Here’s a closer shot.

And they threw in a little treat – 1 ounce of soft merino naturally hand-dyed to this lemony yellow using Queen Anne’s Lace dye and aluminum mordant.

Can you get a crush on fiber?
