Another Wrap !!...& New Model..

I thought that I would take the opportunity to use my Mam as a model for my latest Luxury Alpaca Wrap.

Its gets a bit repetitive all the time with only one model, (me). Anyway people might thing that I am appearing a bit too often on the blog !

So just before they went back home I got my Mam to do a bit of modelling in the garden, this wrap was created using Zanubis's fleece (Grey) blended with Tremona (Light Fawn). I am always amazed just how different the fleece looks when it is spun into yarn. Sometimes it is a totally different colour to what it looks like in the raw state.

I just love the different colours and shades that you can create with this type of effect. This wrap looks much like a 'Tweed' style or even a 'Humbug' colour. Although the camera has diluted the colour a little.

This was just a little trial project that I wanted to do, just to see what the completed garment would look like, I think that I will be having a little rest from the spinning, although I must confess I do like to spin. I find it quite therapeutic.

It looks fab, I wish I could find some more time to do some spinning. I have a long list of projects I want to get on with but don't seem to have the time.
