I bought a pound of teal fiber, merino and silk, in the summer of 2012, to celebrate my return to California. Actually, I bought half a pound first at Loop and Leaf, then went back and bought the other bag full they had. Could not resist!
Over the next--good heavens! Has it really been three and a half years?!--I slowly spun it, plied it very slowly indeed, and finally soaked it and hung it up to dry.
What we have here, friends, according to my calculations, is over 1200 yards of slightly variable-in-thickness but relatively evenly spun more-or-less fingering weight handspun yarn.
I could practically knit a tent with this much yardage! But I don't plan on designing a tent pattern.
Oh, and in the bottom left corner, slightly lighter and heathery in color, is some worsted weight I spun from fiber my buddy Elisa gave me. Yes, GAVE me. You heard me. Love that stuff too. Thanks, Elisa!
