Fifty shades of blue

I’ve just finished weaving this blue scarf which came out rather beautiful. I had dyed some fleece in various shades of blue and spun a thread which I then plied with some vintage pale blue mohair. The darker blues were from a different batch of hand dyed darker blues and I think I have ended up with about fifty shades of blue within the scarf. I think this one will go into my shop right away!

It’s a great example of how much life comes from spinning by hand compared to the flat and even colours of a mass produced yarn.
