April Yarn

26 Apr

Mary Stepney wool, kid merino my parents brought back for me from a Texas ranch, silk.  I dyed, carded and spun it.

Earlier skeins were of a heavier gauge.  Two  2/3 filled bobbins plied together yielded6.25 oz and about 580 yards.    That is a dime under the threads.  About 1500 yd/lb.

Now I am working on laceweight yarn from the same stuff.  Aiming for at least 275 yd/ounce.
