I had an amazing time spinning this year, and managed to exceed my 2 mile (3,520 yards) spinning goal. To explain, every yard of 2 ply finished yarn counts as 3 yards, one for each yard of singles spun and a yard for the plying. This means that for the yardage totals for my yarn, all of which is 2 ply this year, I get 3 times the spinzilla yardage. Below please find my totals along with whatever information I have about the yarns.
This formidable skein is 350 yards which counts for 1,050 spinzilla yards. This is wool from Moon Rock Farms in Western NY run by a friend of mine. It practically spun itself and was completed within the first 2 days of Spinzilla. So fluffy and squishy I cannot wait to see what it looks like washed and ready to go.
This is white left over from the original skein, plied from a center pull ball which is my favored plying method. At 44 yards it counts for 132 spinzilla yards and should be a squishy accent for some project.
Each of these little skeins are about 10 yards (30 spinzilla), from various mini batts or experiments. They will also make good accent yarns for some small project, or be incorporated in a larger hodge-podge project.
This 70 yard skein (210 spinzilla yards) is my faux mohair and sari silk skein. I don’t like how it looks, and hope that it works up to be prettier than it is in skein.
This random blue art batt wound up being 76yards for 228 spinzilla credit.
The purple pop is 124 yards for 372 spinzilla yards. Like most of the yarns here this was such fun to spin and ply.
My pumpkin spice yarn is 37 yards, 111 spinzilla, of squishy glory!
104 yards of maritime bliss accounts for another 312 spinzilla yards. This was a beautiful roving of superwash targhee I obtained at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival from the daughter of one of my aunts friends. It spun like a dream and should make a very pretty project for someone.
This 168 yard skein reminds me of a beautiful mellow spring, it counts for 504 spinzilla yards.
This slightly bolder 158 yard skein might pair well with the targhee to make a larger project. It accounts for 474 spinzilla yards and was quite fun to spin.
Last but not Least is the skein created from the Rolags I made using the Alleghany Fiber Arts roving.
At 142 yards, 426 spinzilla yards, this is such a lofty and squishy yarn.
I wound up spinning long draw and creating wonderful woolen yarns. I have not washed any of the yarn yet, and so they have not reached their full squishiness. If they bloom more than I expect I will post just a collage when they are all dried.
For those of you keeping track I spun 3, 939 spinzilla yards.
