Art Yarn Add-Ins

I was spinning up some yarn the other day, adding in my typical yarns and fabrics.  I like to add in textured yarns and strips of fabric.  The novelty yarns are usually around fingering weight or a little heavier.

I decided to add some of my art yarn add in’s (or Snippets as I like to call them) in my shop.  I am going to list these in the Etsy shop I share with my sister.  So if you want to be adventurous with your spinning, check them out!  The Snippets are made from top quality yarn/quilt shop fibers and fabrics.

Handspun

This yarn was spun from one of my textured art batts.  The batt was full of alpaca, merino, mulberry silk, silk noil, Firestar, and Wensleydale locks.  It is really next to skin soft.

This was spun on my Matchless with the bulky flyer.  I am still working on the bulky flyer.  I ended up getting rid of the cotton drive band that came with the flyer.  It just wasn’t “grippy” enough and as the bobbin filled, it seems to slip.  I have a cone of 2 ply linen cotton.  The linen is one single and the cotton is another.  It is a unique yarn…  I am hoping this will solve the drive band issue…

Still Spinning....

I have been working on spinning some yarn for weaving weft.  The latest handspun is a blend of CVM, Wensleydale locks, merino, mulberry silk, and bamboo.
