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.
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.
