Lily Pad BFL -- Wheel spun (2015)

Back to main knitbot gallery page

Lily Pad BFL
Fibre:  Blue faced Leicester (BFL), from Wild Hare Fibers
Method:  Spinning wheel
Completed:  February 23, 2015.

4oz of Wild Hare Fibers Blue-Faced Leicester top, spun on my Schacht Matchless.  Approx 219yds 3-ply and 21yds Navajo-plied.  I did a better job of getting the ply right than on the previous Wild Hare Fibers (Robin's Egg) BFL I did.  N-plying is also coming along.  Since the fibre had more variation in colour than the Robin's Egg, the difference between 3-ply (marled) and N-ply (more solid) is quite clear.

I measured the lengths by counting the number of strands in the skein and multiplying that by the length of the skein (after soaking and drying, to set it).
