Light grey cashmere/silk 2 ply, spun on my Canadian production wheel, for a knitted scarf.
A 50/50 blend of cashmere and silk, this fiber was purchased from Indigo Moon Farm
This 2 ply yarn was to become a Christmas scarf , but by Christmas 2004, it was only a little more than half finished and I had to buy more fiber to finish it. Should have known that basketweave pattern would eat up more fiber than I had bought (2 ounces) First skein was 270 yds.
So I put it in a box, needles and all, and finally finished it in Mar. 2005.
Some dyeing experiments with Easter Egg Dyes
2007 using leftover dye after coloring eggs
Easter egg dyes, a variety of fibers, note color differences on adjacent oranges (darker one was a moorit fleece), and pinks (white, light grey and very dark brown fiber)
The finished skein (40 yds) and a small swatch on size 10.5 US needles.
