Woolfest purchase

I had vowed never again to fall for a gloriously hand-dyed plait of fibre. Oh no. I'd been disappointed before. After spinning, the contrasty colours would look either muddy or clownish. Or, worse, they'd run together when you tried to set the twist.

So what did I come home with from Woolfest? Yes:

70% BFL, 30% sparkle Fibre from FeltStudioUK


Well, it looked gorgeous.

The singles looked nice too:

70% BFL, 30% sparkle singles


But I knew I was running a high risk of spinning mud .... I didn't! It turned out beautifully. I'm delighted with this!

My finished yarn. About 13 wpi.
