Meep! My first post!
This yarn took me 3 years. (Ok on and off, and really mostly in year one and 3 months of year 3, but whatever)
100%tencel, 2 ply, thin and fine and drapes and shiny.
Meep! My first post!
OMG, that is gorgeous and SO thin! I am in awe.
That looks ridiculously beautiful, but uber slippery. I wish you well, and cannot wait to see the FO!!
Shiny and smooth…kudos!
Whatcha gonna make with it?
It’s like a frikken cobweb, how even did you…?
My mom is going to weave it into a scarf or something. We thought to dye it as well… I’ll update as I get pics! Could be a while tho… moms got a backlog of projects
Patients and perseverance. Part of why it took 3 years too!
The finished project will be lustrous!
I have some tencel fiber that has been in my stash for too long. Your beautiful spun fiber is nudging me to spin my stash.
That is just mind boggling. WOW.
Great job. I tried spinning straight viscose bamboo 2 years ago and gave up. It’ way harder than wool and I imagine tencel is too. Yay for perseverance.
@loves2experiment, break it out! It’s slippery, and doesn’t need as much twist as you think. It’s kind of weird that way. No need to spin it this fine either… that was a request from my mom and she’s lucky I still love her lol
@meleriffic, it’s pretty similar to bamboo viscose. Super slippery. Next time I spin this I’m probably going to try over the fold. I Short forward drafted this, and I was exhausted. Lol my next project is a long draw.
Gorgeous! What kind of wheel are you using?
@Belladune ah, the things we do for family. I am planning on it! Wonder if I should dye it before spinning. Hmm. Thoughts?
@photojenn, it was my Ashford Traveller. 10:1 ratio.
@loves2experiment depends if you want a flow of colours (before) or if you want to be more In control of the way the colour hits the yarn. (After)
That looks so slick and luxurious - and something I am not allergic too
Looks like it would be awesome for embroidery too, would make a lovely finish on some satin stitching.
Ooh! Yes Avaria! Such a shiny surface, and would lay nice and flat too.
That is crazy gorgeous!
Have you ever spun satin angora (rabbit) fiber?
Yes, the odd time or two. Nothing as serious as this one tho.
