||Fibre: Malabrigo Nube merino, in Aguas
Method: Spinning wheel -- long draw, from the side
Completed: March 10, 2015.
|The fibre, as it came out
of the bag -- pretty dense
|Closeups -- of the 3-ply
(L) and the 2-ply (R)
|Photos with thumb tack for scale
||On the lazy kate (L). The plying bobbin got really
full (C) before the 3 bobbins ran out (R). I usually
get 4oz of spun fibre plied onto one bobbin -- perhaps the
woolen spun fibre was that much more voluminous!
|The yarn was pretty kinked when it came
off the niddy noddy -- but, washing sorted it out (I did 3
successive cold and hot soak/scrubs -- this is meant to be
woolen, after all...).
