I am back at my fiber blending board, trying out more fiber mixing!
I am striving to achieve the colors in shells, particular the conch shells like these…
I believe it to be a color match success!
All the colors in the shell, these rolags are wonderful colorways for a future spin.
The end whorls of soft downy ultrafine merino are a lovely woolly confection!
The white base fiber is Ultrafine Merino top, and I swear, it is almost exactly like the suri alpaca that I have, extremely soft & silky!
I like to change fiber texture in the layers, between base fiber and secondary colors, so the salmon & fushcia pinks are a different grade of Merino top, and the shimmering gold is bamboo. Okay, here’s the show!
Main Fiber = Paradise Fibers Ultrafine Merino Top (white); layered between everything.
Secondary Fibers = Paradise Fibers Solid Merino Top; layered thinly, salmon first, then fuscia.
Accent Fiber= Paradise Fibers Bamboo Top (topaz); layered last, in scant stripes.
Two repeats of sequence.
