Lock Spinning and Tail Spinning are art yarn techniques where whole, intact locks are securely attached to, or incorporated into the art yarn for a beautiful, dramatic effect which shows off the natural properties of the wool lock to it's full advantage.
I've spun this bold art yarn using my hand dyed Teeswater locks in a palette of Stonemoss, Chartreuse and Blue/Green, which I added to the yarn using the tail spun technique. This technique securely attaches the lock at the cut end, leaving the remainder of the lock freely hanging like fringe. In addition to the fringe of Teeswater locks, I have also spun shorter Lincoln locks in chartreuse and blue into the yarn using the lock spun technique, which incorporates whole intact locks into the surface of the spun strand of yarn giving it lots of pop and texture.
Fibers used for this yarn also include, Corriedale, bamboo, Finn Sheep, Mohair, Silk Noil and Angelina. With 76 yard, you will have ample yardage for your next creative project!
As with any wool/natural fibers, hand wash in tepid water, lay flat to dry.
