SPINNING TO WEAVE
Yesterday day 8 of "Tour De Fleece " I carded some naturaly grown colored cotton that will turn darker green after it is washed because the color is grown in.I know it looks tan but it will turn subsequently darker green with each washing.
I took the the carded cotton( brushed) rolled it around a LONG stick and made cotton punis then spun them on my book charka. I will use this hand spun single yarns as weft in some of my saori weaving
TODAY DAY 9 OF THE TDF I SPUN SOME HAND DYED POLWORTH WOOL DYED BY AND GIVEN TO ME BY MY FRIEND SUE .
SHE ACTUALLY GAVE THIS TO ME LAST YEAR BUT I WAS SAVING IT.... SUDDENLY TODAY I REALLY WANTED TO SPIN IT UP SOI STARTED SPINNING AND FILLING MY BOBBINS
I WAS SPINNING WHAT I CALL NOW MY "RIPENING PLUM YARN"
A INSPIRATIONAL HAND WOVEN , HAND SPUN SCARF I BELIEVE WOULD BE FUN TO WEAVE.
CAPTURED WITHIN THE TWISTS OF THE HAND SPUN ART YARN SUN , BREEZES, BIRDS AND PLUM COLORS OF THIS PEACEFUL JULY MORNING IN THE SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS.
PEACE THROUGH FIBERSpeace, pace, pause, play
