I had some Silk Hankies left from 2012 when I last purchased fiber. I decided to spin them, and while I was on a Navajo Plying kick this past weekend I plied them. I then decided to exercise my new Inkle Loom, and much to my delight I love the results.
Navajo Plied Wool Hanks and One Silk Hank
This past week we had one lovely day of Indian Summer. The weather was about 70 so my mother suggested that I hang the wool that I Plied using the Navajo Ply, and then washed, out on the line to dry. I had also managed to ply the bamboo silk I though I had ruined using the same method. Since I could not decide which picture to post, I posted a selection of them.
With some of the single left over from my plying, I attempted to Navajo Ply.
I really like how it turned out, it has an art yarn feel since my spinning isn’t very consistent right now. Watching a couple more videos, I now know that I don’t have to create a nice short consistent chain, but big long loops to ply. It will be fun to try again in the future.
