Some starry Christmas poi, braving the awful tropical heat with @lisa_lotta_95
This may not look like much- but it is in fact half of a Shetland fleece that I have hand washed, sorted and now hand combed Into little roving nests. I am going to start my spinning now! 🧶🐑🧺🌀🐌
Making Christmas rolags 🎄
Smoothie Froth gradient batt • full of smooth and textured silks, with a woolly base of luscious Rambouillet, grown and milled in the USA 👍
First: photographing Mohair/milk is challenging. Holy shinny Batman!
This is an extra special package set for my Patreon family to enjoy during the darkest nights.
I am experimenting with different common dye techniques. This is vinegar and kettle dyeing vs citric acid and steam.
Can you tell the difference?

No filters but they were tempting here. I'm separating locks out, flicking, organizing by shade, combing with mini combs, then pulling off the top. It's a TON of work and results in a TON of waste fiber but the results are gorgeous. (And I'll find something or other to do with the waste. I do save it.) I don't even know if I'll spin this right away. #gotlandwool #spinstagram #spinnersofinstagram #igspinners

Sushi Donut batts for Theresa and her son Alex! They're super sweet, he's the spinner and she's the lucky recipient of all his handspun 🤩🤩🤩 This batt is on a superfine merino base with baby merino fleece and a cormo/merino cross fleece, topped with mulberry silk, cloud silk, and silk noil and a sprinkling of nepps. Incredibly time consuming to clean/dye/ card (every color you see here is a custom mixed derivative dyed to match the photo) but totally worth it. I made enough to make 2 more of these batts, which will be in 2 lucky stalker box recipients packages

The biggest surprise about #distaffspinning
for me has been how easily I can spin a yarn with consistent thickness. Even when the spindle is very full, most of the drafting happens with the weight of the spindle supported in your hand, with most of the twist added after. It’s also very easy to tell how much twist the wool wants to take, so that stays even too! I am sooo hooked!
That fibery traveling life.
