Creatively, my most favorite material to work with is handspun yarn. I absolutely fell in love with it and when I realized the uniqueness of each skein. I love the process it goes through to reach my hands and then how I use my own vision to create something one of a kind. OOAK! In my Etsy shop, I have a OOAK section of items that I have created from handspun yarn that are all truly one of a kind! I usually make newborn sized hats from this yarn. It all has a wonderful texture and color variation. It could never come from a store or be dyed in a factory. I also enjoy working with the store bought yarns and creating unique items that can be reproduced in different sizes and color combos.
Here are a few of my creations out of handspun yarn that I really enjoyed making.
A thick and thin handspun yarn in bright rainbow colors with a bit of sheen.
A thinner handspun yarn in rainbow colors.
A bulky thick and thin handspun yarn called "baroque" because of the beautiful golds, ambers, lilacs, and deep eggplant purples used to dye this beautiful 100% Merino wool yarn.
A girly and fun thick and thin art yarn with pale and bright pinks and pale and bright golds.
"Autumn Flowers"- a beautiful handspun in light orange, pale sage, and golden colors piled with gold thread.
One of my favorites! A newborn jester hat with poms made from this fluffy 100% Merino wool thick and thin yarn called "Faded Foliage". Beautiful fall colors and a great photography prop for that vintage look.
Not too bad for my first blog entry! I'll be blogging often and updating my page with new items I'm putting in my Etsy shop. Thanks for stopping by!
