Handdyed some 80% merino 20% tussah silk rovings yesterday and played with label ideas this morning. I’m planning to dye some (and spin some of them) for friends.
So how’s everyone doing with their Tour de Fleece? I’m really making a huge progress. I finished my Louet Corriedale, all on the borrowed Traddy (aka Ashford Traditional) and then on my 3rd bobbin of Ashland Bay Gray merino.
I realized I didn’t post pictures of the borrowed Traddy. So here they are.
It was kind of rusty from non-use, but I got rid of the rust (so they don’t get on my yarn!) and oiled, oiled, and oiled. Do you see the OLD Ashford logo? And the conrod is LEATHER. This thing is so pretty. And unlike my initial judgment, this is SINGLE drive, making it really easy for me to get used to since my Kiwi is a single-drive wheel too.
I’m hoping to do some plying next week!
