Last spring I subscribed to an Art Roving club at Taossunflower Too. Finally a year later I spun up the "Matisse at Notre Dame" Falkland roving as finely as I could. I'm still working on my fine yarn spinning. Anyway. It turns out I had dyed an alpaca roving with approximately the same colorway. Total serendipity, for sure. Short story is I plied them together to get this yarn. The alpaca softens up the Falkland nicely. Think I will list it in the shop. I ended up with almost 400 yards.
Remember this? I think this "Mermaid" "spinning with locks yarn" might be gorgeous in a project with the Matisse. I have a theory that your taste prevails when you are picking color, and it will co-ordinate with what one already has. What do you think?
I'm a sure enough Dallas native who spent a good part of my life in northern New Mexico, where I learned the arts of spinning, weaving, and dyeing. Combining those skills with my long time love, knitting, is what I do best these days.
