How to use tailspun way.

When I spin tail spun yarn people ask me how do you use it. It is beautiful to knit with, I love it in rigid heddle weaving. I like to pull loops up throughout the tailspun areas and try to gently pull out the hanging locks. The picture below also uses regular corespun yarn. In one area I use a Saori technique of having two colors in one row... Every so often I wove in a very long teeswater lock to continue the idea through out!


Tons of fun. Wearing it feels like wearing sheep skin without hurting the sheep.(actually this yarn is I guess it would be a goat.)




On to the next project.. Cannot wait to use this one!
