Dyeing to spinPosted: May 9, 2011
I’m still awaiting the arrival of my spinning wheel, I’ve kind of got my hopes up it will arrive today. As of yet the postie hasn’t been but I shall post as soon as it arrives.
So what does one do when one is not very patiently awaiting one’s spinning wheel? (I’m still very much affected by the Royal wedding, sorry) One dyes some combed tops, that’s what.
The first one is kind of colour wheel dyed Wensleydale, Teeswater and Tussah silk. I’m calling it somewhere over a slightly muted rainbow.
The next one is BFL and Tussah silk, the colours remind me of a wintry walk on Filey beach so that’s what I’ve called it.
The last one is BFL, Angora and silk and I’m calling it, Here comes the rain again, from the Eurythmics song.
Now hurry up Mr Postman!
