Two completely different skeins of handspun yarn using the same materials and dye colors in different ways. I love to experiment with color and spinning techniques. I simply can’t keep them all, as I will never find time to knit them all up, so I sell many of my handspun yarn creations for the enjoyment of others.

Skein 1
Merino wool top was spun into this 2ply yarn, in its natural color. I then dyed it by randomly shaking on powdered dye in pink, purple, lilac, lime green, and blue. Instead of low water immersion dyeing which I would normally do for speckle dyeing, I added enough water to fully submerge the yarn, so that the color bloomed out more.

2ply; 1.8oz/52gr; 174 yards; approx. 12 wpi (DK); light and soft in feel

Skein 2
Merino top roving was dyed in low water immersion using same colors as skein 1 sprinkled over top, and allowing the colors to meld together. It was then spun into a 2ply yarn.

2ply; 3.8oz/108gr; 194 yards; approx. 11 wpi (worsted); light and soft in feel

Handspun on my Lendrum & plied on my SpinOlution wheel; dyed in my home studio in Nova Scotia, Canada
