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 🙂
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.
