Textured Art Yarn Tex Ritter Style

I dove into Jacey Boggs book Spin Art and wanted to share with you one of the yarns I made.  I named the yarn purple lotus and I used the Tex Ritter technique.

"Purple Lotus" handspun textured art yarn by Melissa of Hello Purl

It is a combination of auto-wrapping and core-spinning (you'll have to buy the book or take her class to learn exactly how it is done).  I used a fiber art batt carded by Jessie (my friend and business partner),  hand-dyed mohair locks by a fiber friend (Maiysha at Zebisis Designs) that I pulled and fluffed before spinning and some hand-dyed brushed mohair yarn by another fiber friend (Tracey from Interlacements).
