Moonlights Color Blending



This is a collective yarn using three months worth of fibers from MoonWoodFarm’s Moonbeam including Crystal Method (dark purple), Dream Weaver (gray-purple), and Frankincense (golden). First, I divided the fibers into two groups, so that I could spin two separate bobbins to ply together. I added a little more of the darkest purple to one bobbin so that when I start plying, there would be sections that overlaid the colors.

I finely spun the darkest of the purple, transitioning into the gray-purple and finally the golden tan. Afterward, I plied them together. Having previously offset the colors, they easily blending between color changes. For the last dozen yards, I created an Andean bracelet to ply every last bit.

Here you can see the progression of color changes as it blends from dark purple to golden-tan on my swift.
