Tour de Fleece 2014 started on July 5th, and I’ve been busy spinning. Welllll, not really busy — I’m taking it easy and trying to spin a bit every day, a few moments here and there.
My first goal is to spin these two braids of Lanitium Ex Machina dyed Norwegian wool, then ply them together.
Putting them side by side, I was really amazed at how similar they are, even though they’re different colorways. Left: Hedgehog in the Fog, right: Suolaheinä from a 2013 fiber club.
I’m halfway completed already — the first braid is done and I’ve ordered a jumbo flyer and bobbin to hopefully ply the two together without having to break yarn.
And this is the 1975 Russian animation that inspired the colorway.
