I don’t know what to call this. But, damn, am I excited about it.
Teaching myself to spin at lace weight (goal was 900 yards/100 grams ).
This little sample has an equivalent grist of 1208 yards / 100 grams. YES! SUCCESS!
The singles was more than 60 WPI in most places and the 2-ply is about 35 to 40 WPI.
Almost forgot to mention: there is almost no extra twist in the finished 2 ply! It’s not over spun or over plied at all! So happy about that. …and now to spin the 8 ounces of merino/silk. So much. Another test of willpower.
