Fab Fibers! Blue Faced Leicester and Golden Firestar!
The name says it all! I have been impatiently waiting for this wool to dry so I could tease it up and list it at Wind Rose Fiber Studio. This is absolutely my favorite kind of fiber to spin. It started out as soft, combed BFL top and Firestar. I dyed the Firestar a bright yellow and have included a whole ounce to give this wool a golden sparkle. I dyed 3 ounces of the Blue Faced Leicester in purple, wild raspberry, sky and lichen. You can card this fiber which will blend the colors more or, what I like to do, spin directly from the teased fiber introducing colors as your own creativity dictates. Have fun with this bright and colorful collection of fibers!
