I bet you all had just about given up on ever seeing any fiber content on this blog again. Well, I fooled you . . . right? . . . no? You mean you all knew I was just a slacker and eventually I would post again? Okay, that works too.
Stages 1-5: July 5-9
Alpaca Merino batts purchased at Black Sheep Gathering 2008. The batts actually had quite a fewnoils/second cuts (or the merino wasn’t treated quite as gently as it likes to be).
Stages 6-9: July 10-13
Finished spinning the DragonFibers Merino/Bamboo, I had prolly finished 1oz of the 4 before the start of Tour de Fleece.
Stage 10 and Rest Day 1: July 14-15
I thought the first rest day was on Monday, so I took Monday off, then I took Tuesday off, cuz, well, it was a rest day.
Stages 11- 14: July 16-19
Spun up 2 bobbins of Romney to ply with a previously spun hand dyed roving.
Stage 15: July 20th
Ply and wash the Alpaca/Merino. A bit ‘rustic’ but I like it.
Rest Day 2: July 21st
Already took 2 rest days so went ahead and spun today.
Ply the Merino/Bamboo and realize that the plying was very sloppy so you have to run it through again.
Stage 16: July 22nd
Re-ply and wash Merino/Bamboo.
Resulting yarn is a Sport wt. and ~360 yards.
