In my latest spinning session I decided to try my hand at an art yarn skein. It’s not a style, that I’ve had any experience with, and I would say the end product is also well out of my usual comfort zone.
But, inspired by a spinning class I took last fall with Jillian Moreno, as well as a generous gift of colored rovings form my friend Anne of Middlebrook Fiberworks, I wanted to give it a try.
If you’re looking to try your own art yarn, I can suggest the following videos and Instagram accounts for instruction and inspiration.
