The first 7 pictures above are the hanks 1 to 7 Twisted Up and is how they look in the shop and they will arrive if you purchase them.
Then there is a general group shot of 3 Twisted Hanks together
Then there are open hank pictures of the yarn un twisted. Version 1 through 7, so if you want to see what Version 3 looks like un twisted. the third pic after the group shot is the Version 3.



Getting fun variegated colours on a non superwash wool is actually very difficult.  Firstly, if you don't 'protect' the original colour of the yarn with a 'Resist' of some sort, it will all turn blue.  Now you can get variegated blues, take a look at LAVENHAM BLUE 2022 COLLECTION SOLID.  Here you will see blue hanks, some with streaks of darker blue. 

But this is all natural and pot luck but they are still BLUE.  To keep the natural cream colour showing and then lots of different effects of Blues I played around with resits to 'protect' the hank in places.  Some hanks were twisted up, some had silk tied around the hanks, some had string tied around.  Very much like Tie Dye.

Hanks 1 to 7 are trials for upcoming ideas for future collections. If you like them, let me know and I'll keep on experimenting and create more in future collections.

These are all ONE OF A KINDS. They can't and won't be repeated and all unique. 

It will be very exciting to see how they knit up and the effects the bits of natural coloured yarn creates in between the blues!  EXCITING!
