I changed my mind from last week. I'm not going to fill up all my bobbins before I start plying, because this would mean, I wouldn't have to show you handspun yarn for weeks, possibly month.
Back in April as soon as the snow melted I dyed some fiber. 5 x 4oz Blue Faced Leicester in natural brown. I'm afraid after the dye bath it was not quite felted, but close. Without pre-drafting I could not spin it. This is another long term project, and an experiment of sorts, and because I'd like to finish my Humbug project first, this will take a while.
It was intersting to see how the brown fiber took the colors.
My first and only finished skein so far is this:
~ 535yds, 2-ply, 4oz BFL. It's very soft, BFL is a lovely fiber to spin.
I haven't made 2-ply yarn in a while. It's more uneven. It looked better before the hot bath. Can you see that it's made up of two colorways? I used 2oz each of the last two red fibers, but it looks almost solid.
I can't believe it, haven't I just wished you all a wonderful weekend? Well have another one! :o)
