Spin Span Spun

6 Comments

207 (480x640)

On the kate and ready to ply. Not sure about yardage, but I have three bobbins of Merino, spun fine in worsted technique for increased durability, and I’m aiming for 400-500 yards of 3-ply.

A few interesting (or not) notes: this is the most fine spinning I have ever done at one time, and it’s pushing my skill level, which = fun; my elbow was fine with this, which = exciting improvement; I anal-retentively fill my bobbins as evenly as possible, which = very satisfying.

  2. Glad your elbow is holding up! I LOVE the natural color of the Kormo. It’s so pure and creamy.
