Blending colours

I’ve been playing around with my mini louet hand combs to see how versatile they are in terms of colour blending. I initially got them to help remove the many neps I seem to get in some of our fleeces, but they are actually invaluable for fine colour blending. Its a real pleasure working with them and I feel inspired to blend many more combinations – 

So I start with some fleece I dyed earlier, lashing on the colours in layers and begin blending.


It took about 4 goes of transferring the fibre from comb to comb, then I was left with lovely fluffy pink clouds of soft stuff ready for spinning


This is the leftover ‘waste’ full of neps and other stuff!
