While fibre touring the Brooklyn General Store I decided to pick up a bag of superfine merino pencil roving (sadly, only 2 oz of it) and a few packets of acid dye. I dyed the pencil roving in strips, split it right down the centre when it was dry, spun, and chain plied each one into 2 identical skeins. The skeins are 25g each and just about 100 yards.
Spinning my own hand dye, AND getting a 3ply sock yarn! I feel like I’ve arrived, somehow. Now, what to do with them?
Ooh,yummy :) Handwarmers, maybe? That’s my go-to of 50g of sock-weight :)
Good idea! Matching ones :) I’ll try to pair up the colours!
Could you make a Skiers Headband. This is a headband which is shaped to cover the ears.
