Fiber experiments

A couple of months ago, I went down to San Juan Capistrano with my friend JoShell to visit Lori Lawson's Capistrano Fiber Arts Studio. Lori — a lawyer in a previous life — dyes a variety of fibers in beautiful colorways. I came away with a few bags of different blends and colors that I am finally starting to play with.

Alpaca/Merino/Tussah Silk blend (50/30/20) in a colorway called "Fable Valley".

The skein above was spun on a midi Bosworth spindle, but now I am spinning a finer version on a Moosie, another Bossie so named because the whorl is made out of moose antler instead of wood.

Superfine Alpaca/Blue Face Leicester (50/50) in a random colorway.

I have two other colors to try, but no idea of what to make yet since I bought only sampling amounts in each color.

Capistrano Fiber Arts Studio does not have a website, but I think that Stick & Stone Fiber Arts will be carrying their products.


forse potresti fare qualcosa di piccolo... molto piccolo...
