The colour is a kettle dyed variegation, meaning that no two bumps are the same even in the same dye pot. This gives you some interesting themes to work on when spinning and felting your work.
I have spun and knit two samples for inspiration;
- Single 4ply weight on 5mm needles. Spinning my fibre direct from the top allows the colours to play out as they appear in the braid and lightly blend via drafting.
- Two ply DK weight on 5mm needles. Tearing the braid into two equally portions and spinning directly from the top allows the colours to marl much more in knitting.
Here are my ideas for spinning and knitting;
These are; Barley, Duffers - revisited, Easy Fold Poncho, Cobblestone Pullover and are all available via www.Ravelry.com
Have a wonderful day... Sara x
