YARN … FIBER … ART

Tour de Fleece, Day 1, part 2 July 6, 2008

I spun and plied all of the ‘Iceberg’ today. One goal down!

1. Spin up all of the targhee merino rolags, “Iceberg”, into a 2 ply sport weight yarn.

2. Spin up the Miss Babs BFL, “Melon”, into a 2 ply fingering weight.

3. Spin up approximately 120 yards of bulky weight targhee. Possibly single ply.

4. Spin up one art yarn from my cotswold (I have some koolaid dyed locks and some other breed locks to use as well as silver thread)

Three goals to go! I think tomorrow I will start the targhee. It’s already a pin drafted roving (it actually looks like a wool ribbon), so my test will be to not draft it, but give it just enough twist In order to get a bulky yarn.

I’ll take and share photos of the yarn tomorrow, before I wash it to set the twist.
