Handspun 3-ply blue faced leicester sheep wool top. After spun in its natural color, I dyed it a combination of dip dyeing and speckle dyeing in full water submersion. Various hues of light green, turquoise, greys and dark browns, along with the natural color.

Most of the time I dye fibers and roving before spinning, but once in awhile I like to spin the yarn first before having fun playing with color.
