Going round in circles

I have had an idea in my head for a long time about a rainbow coloured spiral.  Finally I have managed an attempt at it, using the Hilltop Cloud fibre I spun a couple of months ago – I am quite pleased with it, but can see lots more variations on this theme, perhaps with a wider spiral of colours and a thin line of black?

I’m now spinning up more black shetland fibre in the hope that I can make a plain black circle, join them together and make a cushion cover.  It’s all rare breed fibre so, if it gets finished in time, it might become an entry for the Rare Breeds Show this year.

  1. I have just been doing the same thing but with homespun fibre from Lower Egypt! I only have four colours and was not happy with the result so undid it all!!! Do you ch 1 increase at each round or just keep on going round and around? And how did you create the initial spiral effect so that it radiates out?
    I love how the fibre colours merge into each other. Nice job!
