A Little Coopworth
Ah, remember I dyed this:
(Coopworth fleece from Merlinthecat)
And was spinning it into this:
(singles I started oh, over a month ago)
Well, I finally decided to spin the rest up (and try and manage all my spinning WIPs, which I realized have become quite numerous, and far outnumber the amount of bobbins I actually own).
And it became this:
(523 yds of laceweight 2-ply yarn)
Which, I think I will of course knit into something from Victorian Lace Today.
(not sure which pattern yet, I think I'll browse and look for the one with the closest yardage)
Love the colors of this, it definitely makes me want to spin up the Fred fleece I dyed at the same time!
523 yds/478 m
3.6 oz/102 g
2-ply, Z-spun singles, S-plied.
WPI, didn't check, but high I'm sure! This is definitely a laceweight.
100% Coopworth wool, dyed with 4 packets of KoolAid (2 grape, 2 black cherry) mixed in water and a little vinegar, then popped in the oven for a couple hours (this is my easy peasy dye method when I only have a small batch of a fiber that will fit in my big Pyrex).
