This merino fibre (with a few sparkles) was dyed by Spin Jones and then handspun by me. I use a Bliss wheel and spin two "singles" and then ply them to form a two ply yarn. It's then washed and balanced (using weights) on the line. Then it's ready to wind into a ball and onto to the bobbin for weaving. The colours are so hard to capture but imagine all the colorus of kingfisher wiht a few sparkle to enhance the colour. The sparkles are very subtle and can only be seen as flickers in the light at a certain angle.
