Purple Rug

The purple rug is off the loom and finished.  I washed the rug and thanks to the breeze this week drying has not been a problem.

I spun fleece from my English Leicester sheep and dyed it in a purple and a mix of blue and purple.  I also dyed some grey fleece which I spun. I have also used dyed fleece for texture.
The rug was woven on my Stanley Dann 4 shaft floor loom.

Rainy Day

Another rainy day.
I had planned on spending time in the garden but that won't happen today.
I have been listing yarns on Etsy.  I still have a few more to list this week.
This is an English Leicester multi colour mini 25 metre hank.

The sheep still arrive at the gate at the same time every morning.
They do enjoy a breakfast of Lucerne hay.
I have been dyeing 8 ply merino yarns.  More to do today.

And finally I have spun some black merino chunky.  Will wind off into 50 and 25 metre hanks.
Always lots to do in the day.  I'm now going to weave.  Have nearly finished a rug.
