Black Allsorts

472.5 metres of halfbred wool handspun from "Black Allsorts" slivers purchased from Aurelia Wool and Weaving. Navajo plyed to approximately a fingering weight (superfine/1).


I have half baked plans to (eventually) use this for stranded colour work, possibly as an accent on a white cardigan or vest.

I was just about to order some of this colourway, but couldn't decide between this one or Sunset. Now I know it's this one. Lovely indeed!

I like that idea, a lot! I've been pondering making a project with a similar stranding technique but, alas, not with homespun.
