1.22 Brightness spun

redfiberspun

There are a lot of fibers I like to spin, but if I had to pick just one and stick with it, this would be it. When I sit down to spin, there is no other fiber/prep that says "ooo, yeah! why do I spin anything else?"

Dunnose Head Farm, MerinoxPolwarth crosses. My bumps have been breeding - every time I think I surely must be out of it, I keep finding more. This was dyed with Cushings Scarlet and it's taken me a while to get round to spinning it. I kept looking at it and thinking "wow that's bright". I did start spinning it and K looked at it in disbelief and said "what are you doing with that?" I said "I don't know, do you want it?" She looked at me in horror, and then said gently, "ummm... NO!"

I think on the whole it should make nice scarves for the Red Scarf project.

you could use it for accents, too - around the sleeves and collar of a sweater, or for little touches in fair isle...

And you're right about the Red Scarf Project. Or, in this case the RED! Scarf Project...
