Fiber to yarn - beauty and monet fiber

Friday, January 03, 2014

Like my bluestone and kookaburra handspun, this yarn started out from two complementary braids from jumbukjulie.

The braids were separated into piles of corresponding colours (three colours for this yarn), then spun into singles and double plied.

I tried a little sample of Navajo plying again with the scraps from this project, and it actually worked. Next time I get some coloured yarn I plan to try this type of plying for the full project. Any tips?
