I kind of fell in love with and had to get some of her roving. This is my first purchase of thin roving.
First I tried to spin, but it did not work. Well, bo-la! I knitted with thin roving and loving it!
Using stitch dictionary, I made up my own cowl.
I am planning to spin for tapestry. Using 4×3 oz fiber, I should be able to make decent size.
I have been listening many people say we should know our fiber better in order to use properly.
Well, hearing is not knowing.
I should be able to track my spinning-way better than previously. Since I started to “Journey to the Golden Fleece”. I want to make this blog to be my journal to this journey.
I used non-dyied shetland and Cotswold sheep, and purchased green fiber (merino, nylon).
Since cotswold had great curly crimp, I should try another type of yarn.
I decided to comb my two-year old fleece from Hokkaido. This fiber was washed and included many vegetable matters.
Shetland is double layer, and it was hard carding.
Here is my washed fiber.
Set fleece into comb.
This is before soaking.
Because thick part is underplyed, I am thinking to sock this yarn. I will try this method first time, and looking forward to see how these will turn out.
braids to singles.
In order to practice spinning, I am trying to chain ply. The term “chain ply” may not appropriate.
4 singles are span with S-twist (counter-clock wise)
2 singles are span with Z-twist (clock wise).
2 2-ply are span with S-twist.
I am not sure where I did too much. Looking forward to bath it to see how this yarn will change.
