Spinning Dyed Fibers »
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Classic, Retro / Vintage, Traditional, Casual
I used merino/tencel from the Sweet Georgia Fiber Club spring 2011. I spun a very fine single and i'm hoping when I navajo ply it I'll end up with a light fingering weight. I stripped the full length of the fibre into sever thinner strips then spun it short forward draw. Very happy with singles. After navajo plying I ended up with 115 gr/approx 300m, 18 wpi which is roughly sport weight. I used a basic feather & fan lace pattern separated by short row wedges to create this scarf which I'm really happy with.Is this your project? Tell us more!
