For those of you who aren’t fibre nuts I perhaps need to explain that BFL is Blue Faced Leicester and its what today’s notebook is made from. I hand dyed oatmeal BFL in shades of pink and blue and laid out a background.
Then I laid on strips of crystal organza wich I love for the texture they give.
Next on was small pieces of sari silk and mulberry silk fibres in red and turquoise.
Followed by short lengths of grey and turquoise roving (part spun yarn).
You can see I’ve part untwisted the roving to create open areas and decided it needed a few extra pieces of yarn twisted into loops. Next time, the finished item.
