Mohair locks and Blue faced Leicester top

Mohair locks and blue faced leicester top went into this yarn made by Jane who attended my lBeginners Long Draw day at  Knuston on 6th September. “Inspired by your session at Knuston last week, I made a skein using the lovely dyed curls carded  into some blue faced Leicester top. After spinning, I plied using a glitter/gold fine ready made yarn. Am quite pleased with the result, for first effort. please see attached pics. The colours are really autumn garden colours.’

I dyed the mohair locks – from Angora Goat – with Ashford’s yellow, blue and hot pink dyes. Rainbow dyeing is the topic for my  group meeting at Knuston Hall on 7th November see Events.
