Fibery Goodness Module One Yarn
I got my Fibery Goodness Module One Yarn done quite a while ago but never managed to post it or photos up here. I used a 15.5 micron combed top of white merino. I have it for sale in the shop in 2, 4, 8 and 16 ounce lots. I included a link above directly to the 8 ounce listing. It was a pure dream to spin and I have not allowed myself to spin it until this course.
I enjoyed it so much that I decided to spin all the modules using the same combed prepared top and see how it goes doing 7 different yarns with the same fiber and prep. I am going out of my comfort zone on this particular course to spin with direction and precision and learn new techniques rather than spin my easy go to yarns.
Having said all that, the first module’s task was to spin your “go to yarn,” so I did. For me that “go to yarn” is a 2 ply that has some thick and thin qualities but is mostly balanced. I pre draft the combed top into manageable lengths and widths by separating the combed top. I spin it in a short forward draw on my Majacraft Little Gem 1. I don’t ply too heavily with my Country Spinner 2 and still managed to give it some woolen characteristics instead of it being a straight worsted yarn. The prep is worsted and supposedly short forward draw is a worsted spinning technique but my yarn always comes out semi woolen. I have no idea how I do it but there you go.
The resulting yarn is very soft, squishy and a joy to touch. I think that I will be weaving a scarf, hat and maybe shawl for myself out of these module yarns as I no longer have anything that is pure white. Everything I made from white fiber in the past has sold in the shop.
