How Did She Do That?

The making of Art Yarn from Alex Myrhorodsky on Vimeo.

Watch this short vimeo on my processes for making this skein of art yarn:  #1446



First you’ll see a session using the hackle (the spiked tool), where I am combing white merino and blue tencel together, after which I’ll use a diz to pull the fibers off in a pencil roving. And then secondly –

#1446-Beginning with aqua merino wool top, I layer merino, purple and aqua tencel, strips of  turquoise lame’ fabric and purple sheer fabric, a few more locks of white wool, and then run it through a drum carder.  Then I take the resulting batt and spin a thick and thin art yarn!
