FEN-tastico! Handspun (2016)
Fibre: Into the Whirled “Fen” colourway on 80% Merino, 20% Tussah silk. 4 – 4.3oz fibre.
Yarn: Approx 380 yds 2-ply, and about 3 yards of chain-plied remainders of the longer ply.
Method: Wheel spun with long draw
Completed: May 29, 2016.
I split the roving in half at the middle (i.e., across the roving) and spun each using long draw on the wheel. This is my second attempt at long draw. I think it was a bit more consistent, but there’s more work to do to improve.
