Okay, so I actually didn’t show you the rolags I have been making throughout September in Preparation for Spinzilla. From left to right, top to bottom, we have:
Paradise Fibers Scarlet ‘n’ Silk, a 50/50 merino tussah blend. This should spin up beautifully, I hope to hit a sport to worsted when I am done.
Ashland Bay Moorit- I think this is considered a heritage breed, I am looking forward to seeing how it spins from a rolag. I have a lot of trouble spinning some of these from top and hope that the change in prep will help.
Yak Silk Blend from Paradise Fibers- I love Paradise fibers, but they try and get me out of my comfort zone quite a bit. I have been terrified of this blend ever since I received it. So I decided to get out of my comfort zone and turn these into rolags to spin up. Wish me luck!
Allegheny Fiber Arts, they have an etsy store. This is from a lovely young woman that belongs to the weaving and spinning guild that I do out of Bradford, PA. I love her fibers, I had previously purchased a roving that she called Mango and it spun up beautifully. Now I have this batch, I forget what she called it but the colors are so perfect for an autumn spin I could not resist. (Though I did add sparkle when I carded it, I am a sucker for sparkle).
I also created a few batts, but I think I will wait and show those as I spin them.
Wish me luck! Happy Crafting, and Happy Spinzilla!
