Spinning with Add-Ins

Here's what I've confirmed about adding objects, namely bows, into yarn. The best thing to do is to incorporate the item into a single, using the fleece as glue around a core thread. I tried adding bows in during the plying stage, and even tying them on after -which is only sort of cheating. These bows are actually sections of a plastic lei.

New Yarn Fantastic

I hand blended dyed fleece with white to make pastel shades. I used both hand carders and my own hands. I flicked the two together and used a yogurt top diz. The technique is only suitable for small amounts. It's also hard on my fibro condition but probably good therapy in the end.
