I purchased a 4oz roving of Corriedale Sliver in the Summer Days colorway by WoolverineFibers. I had spun up tiny bits here and there playing with my tahkli and the rich colors found in the roving. To pass my idle time, I work several part time jobs so idle time is made the most of before sleep, I pre-drafted the remainder of this roving into fine strips that would be easy to spin. Boy were they easy to spin! Before I knew it I had spun up half of the roving and the results were beautiful.
Since I had half of it spun and many of the articles I had read expounded upon the joys of 2 ply yarns I decided to create this yarn as a 2 ply. It is not perfect, but to be honest it isn’t garbage either. I had to deliberately twist this into a hank since once it was taken off of the niddy noddy it did not twist back on itself. This is the pre-washed skein and it might shorten up and twist more when it is washed, but for now most of a 4 oz section of roving created 148 yards of 2 ply yarn. I spun it in a worsted manner, occasionally trying a long draw but mostly succeeding with a short forward draw.
Washed and sampled materials will be posted later, I hope.
