Spunky Eclectic Falkland in the “Autumn” Colorway

Last month’s 4 oz. Falklands handpaint has finally been plied and finished! If you remember, it originally looked like this:

This braid had a melange of colors and I tried to separate the main colors but there was some blending and muddiness because of the way it was dyed. I then chain-plied everything. This was my first attempt at chain-plying.

I try to buy something durable with my Chinese New Year money every year and this year it’s my first spindle. Her name is Grape Soda and she’s a beautiful Greensleeves Katherine’s Cup from Greensleeves Spindles. She has a 2.5 inch Purpleheart whorl with a Macassar Ebony Shaft. The last photo is my first hand-painted braid, Falkland wool top in the “Autumn” colorway from Spunky Eclectic which I am currently spinning.
