I am sooooooooo happy to be able to join in with this year's Tour de Fleece. I missed it last year because of my wrist and thumb problems. My friend Marianne very kindly sent me a braid of her gorgeous fibre a couple of weeks ago so I decided to use it to give this year's Tour a colourful start! The blend is called Seduce and is a gorgeously soft mix of Blue Faced Leicester, baby alpaca and silk. This particular colourway is called Jo.
It drafts like a dream and the colours are just me! Blues and purples with the odd bit of green thrown in for good measure. Marianne creates magic at the dye pots!
Naturally, Flo thinks the colours are rather becoming too. Sigh! Something else that I'm going to have to share with her!
This year, I'm spinning along with Team Ambridge. We'll be spinning as we mull over the day's goings on in The Archers. I've spun about a sixth of the braid so far. I can't decide whether to leave it as a single, or ply it. Perhaps when I've spun a bit more, it'll tell me what it wants to be! xxx
