My first go at chain/navajo plying! I really really like the results. This very well be my default playing method from now on.
I plied the single I spun using this roving.
This is the spun result of this roving which I dyed a few weeks ago.
I bought this lovely black walnut bottom/top whirl spindle at the Farmer’s Market last weekend! It’s a lot lighter than my other and is a pleasure to spin on!
I used some leftover neppy bits along with some alpaca to spin a little, textured sample. I like!
This is what I’m currently spinning at the moment. I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but I spin with a drop spindle (which I love love love). Wheels are too expensive and large for my current college student life style but some day!
This is from the same cheap-as-I-could-find wool as the turquoise yarn. I used Wilton gel icing dye and a microwave to dye this stuff. The colors definitely came out stronger than the other run I did and I plan on continuing to experiment with the dye/water/vinegar ratio to achieve deeper colors.
