1
i am sorting shetland moorit natural, corriedale humbug, soft wool nepps, merino glitz, cotswold, cheviot
2
these wee batts are double carded, i want to create a colour balance & add nepps so they stay with the fibres when it is handspun
3
my nepps were dyed i different dye stock then when washed they mix together
4
iona is the studio rug i am always stepping over her 😁 so i am just adding a touch of autumn tones
5
a little more blues i love blues and browns together they just look right
6
