These two skeins were inspired by my recent Jacey Boggs Insubordknit art yarn workshop. While I favor tiddy, small circumference yarn because I actually want to knit with it, I was delighted to experiment with some of the techniques I learned and adapted them on a smaller scale. Both yarns are aproximately bulky weight but no where near the heft of “art yarn” thick and thins which may only have a few wraps per inch. The bright multi wraps 8+ wraps per inch and the green, blue, purple wraps 10+ wraps per inch.

I hung the finished skeins outside in the fresh air to dry after fulling the fiber by hand “washing” in Soak, agitating, and then rinsing in cold water.
