Blending Color


This is a video of Hermi showing us a technique she learned for blending color like Deb Menz does in her book but without the benefit of a drum carder. I have unpacked my clothes and put away the things I brought back from Spindle Camp but haven't yet downloaded the pictures from my camera. I took this video with my fabulous iPhone and thought if you haven't seen this technique before, you'll be surprised at how low-tech and resourceful this is and how effective the results are.

Just listening to the chatting in the video made it sound like it was a really good weekend. Hope you had a good time spindling!

Cool technique which will definitely be on the must try list. You could hear the excitement build in the soundtrack of the video. What a lot of fun Spindle Camp must have been!

I never thought of making punis that way! I am going to have to show my spinning student that technique. They will love it!!

I turned the sound on, and watched the video. That is fascinating, and a great way to blend the colours.
Thanks for having the presence of mind to film it.
