I am so excited to receive this lovely Icelandic wool from Blaine Fleece and Fiber . I have never spun Icelandic wool but when I saw the Instagram posts from Jennifer of Blaine Fleece and Fiber, I knew I had to give this beautiful wool a try.
My goal is to spin singles for tapestry weaving, which I plan to weave using all four colors show above. It’s been a very long time since I’ve spun singles, so I might have a small challenge on my hands, but I’m ready for it.
My weaving design inspiration is the squash blossom quilt block that you see often in beautiful quilts featuring southwest colors and designs, as well as traditional Navajo rugs.
