I got two 2oz braids of this amazing fibre in November 2011, intending to make a two-ply skein of light fingering weight yarn. It came out a little thicker than I wanted but I have 296yds to play with.
Fiber: Corgi Hill Farm baby camel/silk 50/50 blend in Ginger
Amount: 296yards, 4oz
Tool: Majacraft Rose spinning wheel
This was the first yarn plied on my new Woolee Winder, since as everyone knows, the seventeenth wedding anniversary is Fibre Tools and Audio-Mixing. I was pleasantly surprised how much yarn fit on the bobbin, four ounces of this took up a little over half the space available and was so neatly wound.
I’d like this to grow up to be a scarf or possibly a cowl with matching fingerless mitts. It’s shiny and full of drape, there’s not much body to the yarn and I think it will block nicely.
