Spinning With Color

Sheeps and Peeps' youngest spinner, Lena, age 11, has been designing and spinning with the Easter egg and koolaid dyed roving and locks.

First, she has been spinning on the spindle with one of her painted rovings from the previous post with the following progress so far:




And she also has been designing spinning batts using wool from one of our our Lincoln cross ewes layered with stripes of the carded locks from the canning box of color adding generous amounts of angelina for sparkles. Some of these were given as Christmas presents to her aunts. But, she couldn't resist spinning up some for herself on the Minstrel with this result:





These batts were each rolled lengthwise and the pulled into roving which made a beautiful blend of colors.
Great job, Lena!! We can't wait to see what you create with these yarns.
