Peacock Wool & Silk, 4 oz

An ounce of my singles before plying...

2oz plyed up and ready for soaking...


812yard of a 2-ply laceweight!! I got this roving from a show near Dayton this fall from Valhalla Acres, which has just opened an Etsy store. This roving was very elastic and wanted to bunch up so I spun it more in a woolen fashion....
(at it's basic form as I understand it, woolen spinning has more trapped air and the fibers aren't smoothed down and compressed like a worsted yarn) I tend to prefer a smooth yarn so most of my other spinning has worsted tendencies.

 
The finished yarn still has the coloring of the singles but the sun was actually out and so the color trueness is a bit off.
