Spinning Embroidery Thread

After dyeing the English Leicester locks last weekend I decided to try spinning them into embroidery thread/floss.

I had a few suggestions from my spinning group,  namely spin fine and even.

I only spun one lock as it is fairly time consuming, but it think it’s going to work πŸ™‚

I think next time I will spin and ply with more twist as this one seems a tad loose.

I’d also like to try other fibres such as silk which I think would give a lovely shiney thread.
