Popeye Arms Two-Ply Handspun

Project Description

What was your inspiration? I love making big yarns on my Ashford Country Spinner spinning wheel as it's designed to spin large fluffy yarns that can hold a lot of texture. This yarn was two big/thick singles that I plied to make an even thicker yarn. It works up well on large knitting needles or with a giant crochet hook, the bigger the better as the texture and colors of the yarn really pop out with large stitches.

What you will need

  • I used all different types of wool and assorted fibers (sparkle
  • novelty yarn
  • fabric bits
  • etc) to make this yarn. Very thick and bulky
  • would make one heck of a scarf!
