Traditional boucle with its elements: the ball in back is the finished boucle, the paler single-ply ball at right is the working single (drum carded, hand-dyed kid mohair and tussah silk), the darker single-ply ball at left is the first binder (hand-dyed, drum-carded kid mohair and tussah silk), and the bobbin contains the final binder, handspun tussah silk from a space-dyed top.

    Julie O'Neil/Flawful Fibers & Yarns

"Enchanted Forest" - Extra fine dark BFL and mossy green w/blue domestic wool, each spun thinly with an s-twist, then Andean plied with z-twist so that they were separate 2-plies.
The two were then plied together (s-twist) and ended up worsted weight.

Lavender Cloud
I started with a very soft white romney fleece and kid mohair locks I dyed lavender and blue. After washing the wool I picked it all together. This little bit of preparation helps to preserve the locks and lets the colors remain distinct. After spinning on my Louet s75 I plyed it with a rayon novelty yarn.
