Learning to Spin Art Yarn

 

So I really like fibres. No big epiphany there. I've always been in awe of those who create art yarn. It's so lofty and full of personality. I've even created a collection for The Pear Co. with fabulous art yarn from Designs by Amber Fibers. I thought maybe I'd eventually try it for myself but it's so intimidating!

I was lucky to grab a drop spindle from a destash sale and here we are. I'm teaching myself how to spin yarn with a dog brush for blending fibres, chop sticks, and the pure love of creating.

I have a drum carder on the way as well as more delish fibres for blending! One day I'll get myself a spinning wheel and there will be no stopping me. Until then, look out for small collections of yarn and art batts for you to spin into fetching yarn of your own.
