Perhaps Leigh somehow knows the agonies I have been going through trying to determine the sett to use for my next handspun shawl?
I spun this yarn from Rhiannon’s Fire (orange) from Crosspatch Creations’ Triple Play rovings, I purchased this from The Bellwether.
So far I have plied two skeins. Each skein works out to be 260 yards. There seems to be enough of the singles left to ply another skein of about the same length. The total plied yarn will represent about 8 ounces of fiber.
I had been nervous about the yarn, however. I had spun it on my electric Babe and plied it on my Ashford Traveller with high speed Woolee Winder. Then I dunked it into the water to soak. No twist at all. What a relief!
The wraps per inch are 13-14. This is a little difficult to judge because the yarn is a textured yarn so there are (relatively) thinner and thicker parts. This is not the result of incompetent spinning. It is the result of a fiber that is deliberately processed to result in a textured yarn.
