We decided to swap a 4 oz. batt and 2 oz. of assorted locks and other add ins for spinning. We had 3 weeks to complete the swap.
This is what I sent:
This is what I got:
Drum roll please...
This is what I spun:
This is the yarn that Vanessa spun"
Here the yarn is core spun with all the locks and goodies spun in tandem with the batt. The the yarn is coil plied.
I think I can speak for both of us that this was a positive experience. I loved the surprise of receiving somebody else's fiber, ready to spin. It was a great way to spark my creativity and recognize my personal style. I loved seeing Vanessa's vision and how it was different from my own.
Now to use the yarn...
We will have to get back to you with that.
