Strangely enough I love the spindling results, but the yarns I spun on my wheel are a nightmare.
So first the nightmares:
4oz Falkland roving dyed by Spunky Eclectic. I love Falkland because it is soft, spins easy, usually provides instant gratification. Well, I overspun this - which seems to be my major problem at the moment, after skeins and skeins of low twist yarns....
And I didn't only overspin but also split the roving in a way that the beautiful fall colors into a muddy mess.
4oz Merino/Bamboo roving, also dyed by Spunky Eclectic. Again I wanted to give this a little more twist than I usually do, and .... a rope. A rope in pretty colors, but a rope nonetheless.
The worst of all:
100% Pygora. You might remember that I spun Pygora twice before, one beautiful silver colored yarn and an ivory white fuzzy shiny beauty. The third lot I had was the largest, more than 4 oz, and it seemed as if this was the softest lot of the three. We will never know because - again - I overspun. You would think I would learn, no? This is the real nightmare, nothing I can do with this camel colored wire...
Now to the delights (thankfully there were a few, otherwise I think I would have tossed my equipment)
2 of 4 oz pure tussah silk, hand dyed by Squoosh fiberarts in colorway Fraises.
This is the second lot of Pygora. Absolutely gorgeous, I think. It's shiny and fuzzy and soft. The fiber was by Shaggy Bear Farmd in Oregon, sorry, I don't have a website link.
And some spindling in process that seems to turn out OK:
SW Merino/Cashmere blend on my Golding ringspindle hand dyed by Corgi Hill Farm, and
Merino/Bamboo blend, hand dyed by NewHuehandspuns, spun on my new Jenkins turkish spindle.
And I am trying to take the curse off my wheel be feeding it some beautifully soft Merino/Angora blend. I will let you know how that goes...
