First handspun

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I made me very very first skein of hand carded, handspun yarn ever... What advice would you give someone starting this project? I didnot aim to make art yarn, but just carded some fiber together. When I started spinning I did not have a specific weight in mind, but it soon proved difficult to produce a regular yarn, so I just turned it into a thick and thin, because that was what I was doing. So just grab your spindle and start spinning, you may be surprised at what you are capable of!! As was I!

What you will need

  • A blend of merino
  • bfl
  • acryl and plied it with a commercial yarn
