New Yarn

I spun up these balls of yarn a few weeks back.  The large ball of yarn is from white fiber off our boy ATA Peruvian Harley.  The two smaller balls are a new creation.  I read about this on another blog (I forget where or I would link you to it, it was really neat!).  The blog spoke about plying a strand of yarn with a strand of thread.  It gave me great idea to add a bit of color to my yarn.

I found some blue thread that I plyed with a strand of white alpaca yarn, and I found a yellow color thread (not sure it's actually yellow, maybe tan or golden).

I created these:

They look great, is it embroidery thread you've used?

Honestly Debbie, it's old thread that my grandmother had in a box with her sewing stuff. It was in a ball like thread you would use on a sewing machine, but it had several ply - as crafty as I am,I haven't seen anything quite like it. I was actually wondering what to do with it when this idea came along :)

Great, I'm going to have to hunt round to find something because I love the effect it has given.
