New Year's Eve Spinning

For the past few years I have participated in a New Year's Eve Spin-In on Ravelry (in the Spinners' Study Group).
This year I cleaned and combed part of a raw fleece to spin. This was a section of the fleece that was very coarse, with a long staple length (about 4-5 inches).


I dyed the fibre,


then drum carded it to blend the colours.


I spun the second bobbin of singles and then plied the yarn on New Year's Eve. I ended up with 130g/273m of 2-ply yarn, about a Dk weight. I spun this yarn for a weaving project.

 Today was a beautiful, clear day with lots of frost.

The last post of the year, and the last of the decade! 

All the best!♥︎

I really love see the magic you do with spinning! You are the person that motivated me to start knitting socks! I've just finished my 7th pair! Happy New Years and much happiness to you in 2020!
