|Shetland/Merino 2 ply hand spun|
|merino super wash hand paint roving|
The last few evenings I have been working on this super wash roving that I hand painted last fall. It is shades of dark royal blue, teal, green, and purple. It always takes me awhile to shift to spinning the shorter Merino fibers from the long Shetland. It is always so fascinating to see how the colors will blend as the singles take up onto the bobbin.
I love the way the fiber flows through my fingers, twisting into its transformation - it casts a spell of contentment and peace as it passes through my hands. A meditation in utilitarianism melding with art.
|Finished single ready for plying.|
