Custom wool yarn made for your next
Create a unique colorway for you next knitting project and spin the yarn for the total handmade experience. I can spin wool and some bamboo (the color range is limited). If you desire undyed yarn I can give you even more options as to choice of fibers.
How I like to work: Once I accept you proposal we will talk about what you want the yarn for and what 'theme' or 'feeling' you want your finished project to convey. We will also talk about what you are planning to use it for so that I can recommend which kind of yarn I spin is best for your project.
I rarely limit myself to a single color choice unless you are planning to work on a cable knit or similarly complicated project. I find that even if you desire s single color to dominate working in bit of other colors will add depth to the yarn. I have also found that a good rule of thumb is that the more complicated the stitch pattern the simpler the yarn should be and vice versa.
All in all before I sit down to my spinning wheel I want to have a complete concept to work with.
The unit price is by the skein spun. You can see my work @9wavesfibers.tumblr.com
You need to know what colors you are looking for when you propose a deal and I will need at least 3 weeks to obtain fiber and spin the required yarn.
Training & Qualifications
I have been spinning for more than 5 years now and can spin practically anything. I spin at least an hour most days.
