Although I adore anything labeled Spun Right Round, the colors of this particular fibre are not ones I tend to go for. I had to put some effort to make it my own. The initial attempt was to spun as is and navajo ply to maintain the color sequence. However, the singles on the first bobbin were too thin as seen on the picture above - right bobbin. The new plan was to aim for stripes. For the second bobbin, I separated and spun the colors in a specific sequence.
The yarn shows a lovely barber pooling along with some yellow, white and brown solids--creating random stripes. Love it!
This is the first time that I try the long draw draft. It isn't my most even yarn but I am really proud for trying a new technique. Long draw produces airy, fluffy yarn. I think I will use the skein as a pillow until I find suitable project.
- Fiber: Merino
- Colorway: Oh Nuts!
- Weight: Sport
- Yardage: 375 yds. approximately (measured with a "yarn balance" which I know is not 100% accurate due to the nature of handspun; but is good enough for me on a quiet Sunday)
