Shetland four ways

This is a catch up blog, just because I love the yarn and I wanted to share it.

Earlier in the summer I finished a long running (yes, again and over 2 1/2 years long) spinning project.

The wool is shetland and its spun from four shades – white, a lovely grey, beige – mid-brown and chocolate. You need to look at more than one image to see all four shades!

I rotated from one shade to another creating a thick and thing single. I need to improve the tension because the thin bits are quite over spun, however, I like this as a feature.

For now, its living in the stash, looking a good project!
