Back to main knitbot gallery page

Robin's Egg BFL
Fibre:  Blue faced Leicester (BFL), from Wild Hare Fibers
Method:  Spinning wheel
Completed:  February 5, 2015.

4oz of Wild Hare Fibers Blue-Faced Leicester top, spun on my Schacht Matchless.  Approx 249yds 3-ply and 128yds Navajo-plied.  The straight 3-ply is a little underplied -- I was testing the loop-back while plying,  but the singles were rested, so that gave me bad guidance.  Still working on my N-plying technique -- lots of breaks.

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).
