I have been having fun with the drum carded at work. I dyed some superwash merino and some tussah silk in the same pot the other day with the idea of blending them into something that I haven't spun before. And I succeeded.
Presenting the dyed silk and merino.
I equally divided the merino and silk into 5 equal bundles of 105 grams of merino and 5 grams of silk,
which I then blended on the drum carder,
and made in to five wonderful bundles of beauty
that I have started to spin tonight. One of the bundles had a little more pink in it and I am splitting it into quarters and spinning in in between the other four with a little bit of the pink blend saved for the end. I will then ply it from a center pull ball. I am hoping that this will even out the purple bits. It is nice to spin and I hope that it will be nice to knit with. Some day.
