Merino/silk/bamboo top dyed by Lisa Sousa with remaining fiber to be spun. I got this fiber at Stitches Midwest, and also my Trindle spindle. So I started spinning this fiber on that spindle right away. I am still working on this project and just love the process and the yarn. 170 yards 2 ply 16 WPI.
From left to right:
Magic Five challenge skein, TdF 13, I call it anything but wool. The challenge was to put 5 things into a batt and spin it. I used brown llama, light gray angora,white mohair,bright blue bamboo and rainbow color fire star. This is the order from most to smallest amounts no exact percentages. I made three batts and spun a single and then chain plied the yarn. 70 yards, 11 WPI 3 ply.
Wild Hair Studio art batt. 47 yards, 2 ply 10 WPI.
BFL dyed by Frabjous Fibers 83 yards, 2 ply 8 WPI
Salish fiber sample skein, woolen spun 2 ply 40 yards.
The next two skeins are the same fiber with different appearances.
BFL dyed by Cloudlover. Both skeins are chain plied and 9 WPI. First is 40 yards, and the second is 124 yards. The first skein was a state fair entry skein.
Mohair one single dyed purple, milk one single dyed blue, spun on spindles and plied together as a sample skein. Fondly called my Jimi Hendrix skein because hubby said it looked like I was spinning a purple haze.
Alpaca etc, sample skein to practice support spindle spinning. 17 yards, 2 ply 11 WPI.
