Here is what I spun this year -
I spun 1.3kg (almost 3lbs) of fibre into about 3.6km (2.25miles) of yarn!
More details can be found on my Ravelry page (here).
Here are lots of pictures showing fibre-to-yarn of all that I spun (with links to the Ravelry pages if you want more information about the yarn, and more pictures!) -
I dyed some silk, merino wool, angleline (sparkly stuff) and silk noils,
using a blending board, blended it to create these rolags,
and spun 330yds, 91g of fingering/sport weight yarn (Silk and Merino Blend).
I dyed a gradient of merino,
and spun it into 450 yds, 107g of fingering weight yarn (Rainbow Gradient).
More merino that I dyed,
and spun into two different yarns - one with short colour repeats and the other half with long colour repeats. This is a singles yarn that is fingering weight - over 500yds and 100g (Brights! Merino).
This next project was spun using the only commercially dyed fibre - the red at the top of the photo, I dyed the other half of the fibre (it was originally a gold colour), both merino,
and using a drum carder created a blend, that I dizzed (pulled the fibre through a hole on the button),
into the blend ready for spinning,
and spun into this yarn - 1,086m, and 458g of yarn (Drum Carded Merino).
This next one is a North Country Cheviot and Suffolk wool (from an eco friendly farm in Ontario),
that I dyed (some was left natural),
and blended on the drum carder (dizzed it too ready for spinning),
creating this art yarn - 70yds, 61g of worsted weight yarn (NCC&S Blend).
Some silk and merino,
that I spun,
and then dyed. 68g, 250yds of fingering weight yarn (Silk and Merino).
I tried a new fibre - Finn wool, that I dyed,
and spun into a DK weight yarn, 105g, 194yds (First Finn).
This is some natural dark merino that I dyed black,
to become 350 yds, 106g of fingering weight yarn (Dyed Black #2).
Some polwarth wool, silk, and silk noils that I dyed,
and blended into rolags on a blending board,
and spun into 525yds, 109g of light fingering weight yarn (Silk and Polwarth Blend).
I finished off the Tour de Fleece with a sample of hemp that I was given,
it was lovely to spin and made a little skein of 57 yds, 9g (Natural Hemp).
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!♥
