Here is one of the more photogenic skeins of my thick/thin single ply handspun:
Spun: January 2012
Roving: 100% merino wool (frabjous fibers)
Colors: green, brown, blue
Spindle: Schacht 3” Hi-Lo drop spindle (2.2 oz.)
1 ply, ~? yards, 8.0 Ounces, 11 WPI (DK)
I haven't really had the chance to estimate how many yards of this I have, but it is likely quite a bit because I had eight ounces of the stuff. You might remember that I recently bought this fiber at the cute little Winter Woolfest in Wamego, Kansas. I have really enjoyed working with it even though I usually do not enjoy working with pure merino. But this fiber was not very grabby at all and was wonderful and springy!
Now I'm able to cross off yet another one of my Fiber Goals for 2012:
Also, I wanted to thank everyone who left such kind comments on my last post about my year of spinning. I don't fancy myself a good spinner, but I hope to one day reach that level and your encouragement really helps!
