Spinning Floss

I've been dying and spinning embroidery floss for my latest projects. I've been using a tightly wound single. This allows me to twist the fiber tighter or looser depending on the effect I'm trying to achieve. I've had a lot of fun experimenting with dyes.

If you want to see some of my handspun in (embroidery) action, check out my Art Therapy blog.

Thank you so much for your good wishes.
Your wool thread is wonderful!
I tried to click on your link to your art therapy blog but it didn't work.

Wow, seriously? You can spin your own embroidery floss? How cool is that!
I'd love to give some a try - would you be interested in selling some? LMK.
