This was definitely a weekend filled with spinning. I took my wheel to my local coffee shop on Saturday morning and spun there while enjoying a pastry and a delicious cup of coffee. By the time I left I had finished the 1st 2 ozs of the fiber I had with me.
By Saturday night I had 2 full bobbins of Cloudlover Fibers in 50/50 merino/silk in the Tesla Coil colorway. I have to say I have never spun anything with this much silk and it was a dream to spin. Super soft, and wanted to spin very fine.
Sunday I plied. I plied up the whole 4 oz before heading out and doing some much needed yardwork.
Sunday night I wound off my finished spinning. It still needs a washing, but it came out to be about 256 yards at 18 wpi with some thick spots here and there. It is roughly a sport weight.
I’m not sure what I want to make with this. I’m thinking a lovely cowl would really make this yarn shine.
Hope you had a good weekend!
Until next time…
