Handspun - Merino Wrapped with Angora and Thread
Here is the third month of working through Jacey's "Spin Art" book here and and this month's fibre is TORNADO. I used Ocean Blue Merino from Kathy's fibres here (I find her dyed merino is the most competitively priced fibre around). I wrapped the fibre with commercial angora/boucle and two other commercial threads (one glittery). I quite like the end result and because I have spun 100gm, there will be enough to make either a hat or put it towards my handspun circle vest I am currently making.
