Dyed Fiber Samples from TNNA

Here are some goodies from TNNA in Long Beach that I wanted to share with you. We are seeing more and more interest in spinning and the preponderance of spinning fiber speaks to this.We saw some mighty fine dyed fiber—all the more to inspire you… to spin! Left to right: targhee top in Northwind and Wilderness from Mountain Colors, blue faced Leicester in Sumptown Coffee Brown and Rouen Buck from Pico Accuardi Dyeworks, blue faced Leicester/silk blend in Tulips from Abstract Fiber, dyed wool roving in turquoise from Misty Mountain Fiber. Anyone of these will spin into beautiful yarn. Happy spinning!
