I haven’t been felting much lately, other than teaching, but I have been doing some spinning. I borrowed a friends blending board to try making some fancy rolags to spin from. I used 2 shades of orange, a purple wool, some silk and a tiny amount of trylobal nylon on the board. It was my first time using the blending board so I was getting instructions and pointers from Judy.
I spun it on my new top whorl spindle. I don’t usually use a top whole spindle but I couldn’t resist this one from The Clay Sheep
Here I am spinning on it.
The yarn came out quite nice. I could have added more sparkle but I am always cautious of adding to much sparkle. I wound it into a center pull ball the other night so now it is ready to be plied.
The other cool thing I got with my spindle was a hair stick. I asked her to make it as a special order.
Thanks To Jan Scott for the great pictures of me with the blending board and spinning. I think you took the hair stick pictures too even if it was on my phone.
