My first sweater-spin project is coming along nicely. The bundle of Shetland wool above is gradually turning into the skeins of yummy yarn below:
Up close, you can see the slight variation in color between the three plies that make up this yarn.
The effect is subtle, as you can see in the following photo of my first swatch! How exciting.
So far I have about 5 skeins. I have yet to measure my yardage. It will be very interesting to see how much yardage I get out of 24 oz. of spun fiber.
Next time I will talk about color variations in the unspun fiber and how that can translate into very different skeins of yarn.
