This is stunning! Did you take a crafsty course for spinning? It is really beautiful. Did you start with 4oz?
BrenBoone answered:
No I didn't take a craftsy course for learning to spin. That was a lot of trial and error. I did take the spinning dyed fibers class and it really helped me plan out how I want colors to transition in my skeins. This particular skein is about 4.5 oz. Thanks!!
rarruda asked:
Absolutely beautiful How do you gauge your yarn? You have a gift
BrenBoone answered:
Gauging my yarn really does just come from experience. I already have a particular weight in mind before I start spinning and I already know how much fiber I'll have to draft out to achieve that weight. It's just because I've spun so many skeins.
