Ohhh the Merino handspun turned out even nicer than I expected! Upon drying, it is so soft and squishy and lovely!
Here are some photos of the entire process:
The roving in its entirety:
Two bobbins of spun singles:
Two fat bobbins of 2-ply:
2 skeins of plied yarn, pre-washing:
2 skeins of plied yarn, post-washing. Can you see how the yarn plumped up and relaxed? I just love it!!!
And next up is this bit of green roving that the Wee Boy dyed on Easter with leftover dye. I think I might try spinning this plump as well, because I’m so, so happy with my fluffy white Merino, in spite of the thick/thin areas.
