With spring finally here, I thought it was a good time to have a mini spin event to celebrate the beautiful spring flowers that are happening for so many of us.
I dyed up two different colorways of 2 oz. Polwarth/Silk rovings:
- Tulips: Green, Pink, Purple, Yellow, touches of Orange & White
- Tulips Skyview: Blue, Green, White & Yellow
I started using Greener Shades Dyes for the rovings I have been adding to the shop.
Green Shades Dyes are a non-hazardous, non-metal eco friendly acid dye. Good for me, you and the environment. Win-Win.
I also created handcrafted yarn tags to send one with each roving. Hand stamped, watercolor painted, a few other bits and bobs to make it original and pretty. We all want pretty tags to label our finished yarns, yes?
The event runs April 15 – May 1, 2021. Nothing special other than purchasing one of the #springflingminispin2021 rovings, spinning it any way you want and posting a picture of the finished yarn with #springflingminispin2021 on Instagram by May 1, 2021.
I’ll be drawing one name from the completed Instagram posts on May 2, 2021 to receive one #campspin15in21 pack.
Enjoy the zen of this spinning event, sounds of bird song and days of spring!
