Eric loves to spin; he chats with little girl Nikki who is spinning during a show.
These are some of Eric's prize-winning mohair yarns.
These four skeins are Eric's most recent creation. Here are his description:
"Far left is adult "silver" mohair, 2 ply, overdyed with cobalt blue (tightly wrapped), then overdyed again with cardinal red (loose).
The next is also adult cream/off white mohair/shetland wool blend, single ply, overdyed in the same cobalt dye pot (tightly wrapped) then overdyed again in the same cardinal red dye pot (Iess tightly wrapped).
The next is 2 ply silvery brown-taupe kid mohair, sport weight, overdyed with brilliant yellow (I really like the color, its almost a greenish/yellow hue).
If I remember correctly, the far right is cream/taupe yearling mohair, 2 ply, overdyed with Egyptian red.
The mohair is all from HGF goats, the shetland wool was from Sara Amelse. Everything was hand dyed as yarn.
I spin one hour each night before I go to bed, no phone, no computer, no interruptions; to clear my head and it really helps! I've been playing with some different techniques with blending/plying the mohair and angora."
