gifted me a whole pack of assorted fleecy bits to spin on my new wheel!
Well a couple of weeks have passed and I may have spun them all up...
There's some pastel cheviot, green & black humbug jacobs and natural humbug shetland - all so pretty!!
None are plied, they all ended up around fingering/4ply weight and I was happy with that, because I've decided to make a from scratchy handspun and handknit beekeepers quilt :D
Aaaaand before, they looked like this! -
Next, I decided to tackle the next hurdle - plying. Going for a simple 2 ply, I spun up this lovely 70% black shetland 30% bleached tussah silk. The plying was so easy! Can't believe I've been putting it off! - don't put it off spinners! Ended up around DK/worsted, so I may make a hat :D
Navajo plying will be the next test on this beauty of a braid:
What did you spin this week?? Send me where you get pretty fibre from :p
