Felt Balls!

 I had been dreaming about spinning some more art yarns with felt balls and have finally done it! I spun a single from hand dyed fleece and mohair in different shades of green then added in felt balls as I went along. Great fun! I really like how as you weave with the yarn its a lucky dip where the balls are going to end up on the cloth. I could have sewn them on afterwards but it was much more enjoyable and free flowing for them to land where they wanted to :)

 After a section with felt balls I started using other handspun yarns, with purple coils like spring flowers.

And ended with some sky blues, after washing I think I will sew it into a sweater from the Saori Self Innovation through Free weaving book. Maybe :)
