June Carder’s Club

All the June parcels have arrived now so it’s OK to share the picture.

Here’s the before – 50g purple shetland, 25g grey merino, 25g dyed purple seacell. The purple was dyed with fibre reactive dyes using a cold method.

The fibres were striped together in 3 batches. Then the resulting batts were carded again. I spun up in to fine-ish singles and then 3-plied.

The result is approx DK weight yarn with a beautiful gloss from the seacell and a slight heathery/tweedy appearance. I’m thinking about using it for weaving but I’d need to do some more.

I can’t wait to see what the club members do with theirs!

Now I have to get going on the July parcels.
