Spunky Eclectic, March 2008 Fiber Club selection, "Mud Season". Merino top, 2-plied.
Again, I'm loving the fiber club idea! Not necessarily colors I would have picked out for myself, but I can't help but love the final yarn.
I spun this yarn fairly thin as singles, but interestingly, it really shortened in length, and widened in girth when I washed it. A full 25% of the original length was transformed into extra poof. Originally, this looked like a laceweight (albeit, on the heavier side) 2-ply. Washed, it definitely falls into the fingering weight category.
110g/3.9 oz, 304 yds. Spun more of a short draw technique, then 2-plied back on itself from a center pull ball.
