Day 7 Tour de Fleece
I managed to ply my two strands and finish up about 195 yards of fingering weight yarn. I hope it blooms a bit after the soak. It's drying now. It may take a couple of days in this humidity. I'm not sure I like how the colors mixed or what this yarn will be. It was a a real silky treat to spin.
I finished Wingspan.
I spent the spinning time looking through my sparse stash for something to spin on challenge day. One bag of locks I had was quite dirty and very short. Now I know what to look for next time I buy them. I don't know if it will spin which is a shame as the fibers are very silky and shiny. I also know know I should label my purchases. I thought I would give corespinning a try. My trial piece ended up too chunky to pass through the guide on the flyer. Hmmm.
