Yarn School recap: What I made

The following certainly isn’t all that happened at Yarn School, but bite-sized chunks are good, right?

These are batts I made on the Yarn School drum carders:

The fiber content of each is pretty broad.

The first yarn I successfully chain-plyed (also called Navajo plying):

Spun from hand-dyed wool top I got from The Sheep Shed Studio. It hasn't had its bath yet.

I didn’t take a photo of the yarn I spun long draw from rolags.

Fiber I dyed in the dye lab:

superwash merino

100 percent wool top, dyed in a crock pot

BFL (blue faced leicester) top

merino top


I feel like I went out on a limb on this one, and I was pleased with how it turned out.

All of it was incredibly exhilarating.

If I’m disappointed in anything, it’s that I didn’t spin more while I was there. That’s my own fault, though. Here’s the bulk of what I did spin:

Bobbin 1, half of 4 ounces of Hello Yarn colorway Gentler, merino top.

Bobbin 2, the second half of 4 ounces of Hello Yarn colorway Gentler, merino top. I plan to ply these two singles together.
