For the first time ever, I am taking part in Tour De Fleece….mainly because this is the first time I’ve ever heard of it, also because I can’t seem to stop spinning. I joined team Port Fiber after stopping last weekend to grab more polworth and silk blend to re-create this yarn
I love the color-way so much, yet 155 yards won’t get me very far.
Three 4.1 Oz braids were purchased this time, split up and set to dye
They dried all morning yesterday in the indoor green house
Everyone joined mom outside for some spinning time
By the end of the night, I had decided that I wanted to spin this up thinly, to see how many yards I could get out of a single, especially because this will most likely be a six ply if I want to achieve the same colorway.
This should last me all of Tour De Fleece right? If not, it will keep me busy during the long summer days.
