After my craft room reorganisation I found beautiful tops that were compacted, and some remnants that would not be enough to make anything on their own. I hate waste so I have been playing with resuscitating them.
I blended the colours and carded into soft rolags to make them spin-able again. Adding a smidgeon of cashmere to add luxury, or maybe it was faux cashmere, as the bag was labelled ?,another guild table acquisition.
I spun them American long draw and was pleased with effect.
I then plied with white silk hankie, black Zwartble or self-ply, to give 3 colourways to use as warp stripes in a scarf. It doesn’t zing as much as I’d like, so maybe I find some of the brighter colours from my top-rescue-mission to spin something for the weft.
I’ll keep you posted .
