Tour de Fleece 2018

Tour de Fleece finished on Sunday (a three week spinning event held during Tour de France).


This year I spun over a kilo of yarn! All from raw fleeces that I was given, and prepared myself.
All 2 ply, about fingering weight yarn.



710g, 2441m of yarn with high twist. I plan on dyeing this for a weaving project.




This was part of a brown fleece that was lighter. 161g, 361m that I spun in the reverse direction than normal for a twined knitting project.



After cleaning and combing the fleece, I drum carded some white fleece with a small amount of brown fleece. 92g, 265m.




80g, 210m. I have no plans for these last two skeins.


I really enjoyed working with different coloured, natural fibre this year.

All the best!♥︎
