Some of you might remember this from its time as a single...At the end I've done 650 m two ply lace yarn from the 100 grams of wensley-dale.This is a long staple fiber, but a bit hard, is is not too difficult to spin thin yarn out of it, but it far from being the softest... but then again, knitted and washed a couple of times it'll probable get softer. I don't have plans for it. I will wait until it tells me what it wants to become, or until someone falls in love with it.
This was an almost rainbow colored BFL braid. The finished yarn has very long color repeats (100-150 meters for each color). The finished yarn is 100 gramms, 850 meters of two ply.
And my favorite from this lot...I spun this for a particular shawl/scarf pattern. 55 gramms of pure silk, that became 650 meters of two ply. I can hardly wait to start it... or rather I just wish I could start this, if I wouldn't have about twenty other UFOs lying around, not to mention the books I have to read, and homework for university...
