Autumn Leaves- Handspun Yarn

Project Description

What was your inspiration? Flecia Lo's spinning dyed fibers course on craftsy. This was fractal spun on bfl wool. I split the combed top in half and put one section to the side and kept it whole. I split the second section into 4 additional sections. I then spun both sections onto 2 bobbins and plied them together. I got 350 yds on 4 oz of fiber, sport-ish weight. This was such a fun technique to try! I could see the gradual striping as I was wrapping this onto my niddy noddy. I can't wait to see it knit up.

What you will need

  • Handpainted BFL wool
  • Kromski Fantasia Spinning wheel
