Handspun Goodness….

I have finally gotten around to taking pics of the handspun I’ve been spinning on my Schacht Matchless wheel.  Pics below with captions.  Enjoy!

A Drop of Merlot - 2 ply bulky, wool (solid burgundy plied with green, yellow pink multi) - first ever plied yarn
Limeade - wool multi in fresh greens - the handspun I'm most proud of because it doesn't have any overspun bits!
Pink Pansy - my second plying project - pink silk plied with pink wool multi - bulky
Stormy Afternoon - alpaca/soysilk multi - not thrilled with the colours...
Neopolitan - alpaca/merino/silk in mint, choc and cherry colours - reminds me of ice-cream!
A holiday in Burgundy - burgundy and olive blend wool from the Mountain Spinnery - Brisbane
Alpacaramel - pure alpaca spun from carded fleece - the first skein from a 1kg fleece
Olive Grove - olive wool and lime pure bamboo - the silver reminds me of the leaves of the olive tree!

  1. Hello, I am possibly shooting a sleeping beauty film and I am looking for a spinning wheel that could be transported (very carefully) to a green screen studio and used in the production. Also would be lovely if there is an older woman 45+ who could sit and use it in the film you will have costume and make up etc done. At this stage we are only doing the trailer which will be sent to festivals around the world to try and get funding. If you know anyone who might be able to help out please feel free to contact me at rena.m.clark@gmail.com before August 10th 2012.
    Thank You
    Rena
