Special Blends

I’ve had this inkling to do some special blends lately between my dyeing and carding. What I’ve been doing is dyeing batts of 3 different colors and then after they are dry I separate them and card them together trying to keep things as even as possible.

This batch was special, as it was going for a special birthday present to Julie. I’ve kept thinking it should be called Lagoon, while I was blending it. This is part of Pia’s fleece, a cormo-x, though I think mostly cormo, and is dyed with 3 beautiful Bush Blends. One is an ice blue, one is a aqua green, and one is a green.

  • I can just hear the chanting now, “pia’s fleece, Pia’s Fleece, PIA’S FLEECE!” It’s gorgeous stuff that is saying shawl to me at the moment but we’ll have to see what she does on the wheel 🙂 Thanks again!

  • Wonderful colors. They look so fluffy and light. Congrats on such an amazing job on carding. I must really get into that.
