The photos show a bucket of gathered lichen drying and two of it growing in the woods.
At this time of the year I gather the lichen that is storm blown for use later

The turquoise a slower job altogether. Firstly I need some nice long locks in the same colour way that I have some carded batts. Then I mixed the different colours of the carded wool together and spun one fairly thick yarn which I then navajo plied attaching in the locks . The second lot of batts I spun finer with a lot of twist . I then used this as the core and core spun the 3 ply yarn and tails onto the finer yarn spinning counter clockwise
These are now listed on my Etsy
