Lavender Singles

And now for something completely different:

Fiber: Corgi Hill Farm 50% Merino/50% Tussah Silk in “Lavender Lace”
Weight: 4 1/8 oz
Yardage: Approx. 185
Details: Spun on my Kromski Minstrel at 6.5:1 and VERY slow treadling, I experimented a lot with how to draft.

Since this is more Corgi Hill Farm fiber, and I decided to do something completely different from last time – light worsted singles.

It was a good learning experience. As you can see, it’s overtwisted and there are some pretty significant kinks. Maybe there is a Kink in my future!

  1. Way to go, attempting singles! It took me more than a year to get up the gumption to try spinning for singles. It’s tough to get them balanced, but it looks like you did a great job.
