A Special Spin

The most sumptuous fiber I have yet owned has been calling to me ever since I purchased it from the Hilltop Cloud market stall at Unravel recently.


It is a 50% baby camel and 50% tussah silk 100g hank of pure heaven!

So despite having several WIPs on the go, I just couldn't wait any longer.

To make the most of the beautiful variance of colour and the sheen of silk running through the fiber, I've started this spinning project on my Turkish Spindle.


Being careful to wrap my singles neatly has opened a whole new world to my senses. I just adore the beautiful geometric shapes that are emerging in the process.


I'm so looking forward to seeing how these patterns develop as I build up more and more of the spun singles on the spindle.
