The latest yarn is off the wheel and I’ve decided it looks like the season upon us. Treefall started as a mixed breed wool combed top dyed. I’m going to have a big project with lots of browns, so I started experimenting to see what kind of browns I could get.
Bright yellow and pinks laid the foundations, then greens were added to muddy the color. The wet roving looked like I was going to get some really dark brown, but once it dried the color was lighter and warmer. The fun surprise was that in places the brown color broke and I had some greens peek through!
I spun the yarn into a single and then loaded it onto a ball winder.
The colors looked very warm and crisp on the ball. After I plied them into a 2-ply, the skein had a more heathered-effect. Lovely!
