I'm really not a fan of pastel colors or of wool that resists spinning up softly, but honestly, it could have been much worse. Also, according to the Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook, Cheviot fiber is "chalky" and doesn't dye very brightly, which is exactly how I would describe my experience.
- Finished: September 2, 2012
- Fiber: 100% Cheviot wool (The Woolery)
- Spindle: Schacht 3" Hi-Lo drop spindle (2.2 oz.)
- Other Information: 1 skein, 1-ply, ~225 yards, 2 oz., fingering weight
The fiber I spun was fairly short staple and very tangled (do I wish I had a comb), which was frustrating. However, it looks lovely spun into singles, that may have to be what I do with the rest of the fiber I have stashed away.
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday! Happy crafting!
