Sunday Spinning

March 29, 2015

On Sunday mornings I like to get up while the kiddos are still asleep and jump right on my spinning wheel with my cuppa. The house is usually relatively clean with all the chores being done on Saturday and my hubby is home to help with the kids, so it's a great day to spend some uninterrupted time at the wheel.

 

This Sunday I am spinning some super bulky, thick and thin yarn using superwash merino/silk/nylon/sparkle (63/20/10/2) roving.

Personally, I like to spin my thick and thin yarn from un dyed fibers since it drafts out easier, which give me a more consistent yarn. I also like to spin my thick and thin yarn using roving verses commercial top. Roving is thinner and the fibers are less compact than in top again, making it easier to draft out consistently.

Each skein is 4 oz and approximately 80-100 yards. Once I have spun four skeins, or a pound of this yarn, I will soak it in warm water with vinegar. Then I plan on dyeing the yarn in Peacock inspired greens and blues.

These skeins will be available in this weeks shop update, this Friday at 4 pm, EST.

What would you knit with a skein of thick and thin yarn?
