Project Notes

Welcome to another lovely week of SPIN Weekly!

Today we are combining a gorgeous handpainted ombre with a masculine tweed rolag set.

You can see how I dyed the ombre here, and how I blended the tweed rolags here. Both are trailers for my books and well worth a watch to see how they come into being.

However for this spin I wanted to not only highlight the ombre, but also stretch some more yardage out of it for a thick N-ply.

I don't often spin thick but I wanted to play around with the textures and colours and I think the results are lovely.
