This yarn is on its way around the world, in the form of an article in PLY Magazine (Follow the Fiber, Issue 2, Autumn 2013, p 67-69)
It was a project of a few weeks, involving multiple spindles, many fiber sources, 20 years of textile inspiration, and an active journal that became the written article.
As I was spinning each element, I enjoyed photographing the spindles against textiles, giving the yarn a context and playing with the relationships between my fibers and my textile collection.
The elements of the yarn are themselves textile-heavy, with fabrics and sewn add-ins bulking up the wool and silk fibers.
The process of integrating these parts of my life was a revealing exercise, and very much fun.
