Project

Fractal Spinning

What are you most proud of? I learned a brand new technique! As you can see in my bobbins above, I spun the bobbin on the right a bit different from the one on the left. I learned how to do fractal spinning and found this technique to be quite an interesting experience. I really love the length of the color in the bobbin on the right an as you notice, theres less of a barber pole effect as in the bobbin on the left. Best part, I finally achieved over 300 yards of fingering weight yarn! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go slow and practice, practice, practice!

Thank you so much!
Rhyslarn asked:
Beautiful colors and I loved how it turned out with the fractal spinning. I might have to give that a shot with my next painted roving if the color splotches are long enough.
SpinningCharlie answered:
Thank you so much and I'm now trying this out on another color - it's fun! You should give it a go :)
