I love exploring new fibres for spinning yarn. Recently, I’ve noticed a lot of unusual fibres appearing in online wool shops, fibres made from seaweed, mint, corn, and banana plants. I’m just beginning to explore some of them.
Hand painting wool tops is so much fun. I completely lost myself for a couple of days in dyeing wool using many colours and experimenting with different wool blends and painting techniques.
I love colourful winter accessories, I somehow need them to cheer me up in cold and grey weather. This winter scarf I crocheted with wool I spun on my spinning wheel. I started spinning when we moved to the UK 8 years ago. Someone sold me her spinning wheel and I’ve used it every winter since.
