On the wheel

Loving Hermione's new double treadle! Spinning up some rolags made out of a dusky duck egg blue and a hint of royal blue, with a dash of gorgeous green fire star that I got at Fibre East last year. 



I'm not a big fan of synthetic fibres, but it's a good way of putting a sheen in there, and a depth of colour, without using silk.  

It's spinning up into a gorgeous peacock blue with just enough colour variation to keep it interesting. Will be impatient to see how it plies!
