Two weeks ago during the spinning class I gave, I spun several single ply samples of fibers that I really like to use. After spinning, the samples were soaked in hot water, squeezed out, and hung to dry with some weight on them. And I'm quite happy with the way they turned out, so I think I'm going to focus more on spinning singles and weaving with those. It also takes half as long to spin singles as two-ply yarns, obviously!
The samples above, from the left, are bamboo, merino/tencel, merino/tussah silk, and tencel.
Last week I took a bit of time off from weaving to focus on some art business matters. Now I'm warping the loom again for another silk scarf of hand dyed, handspun silk, and I'm using a luscious variegated grape bombyx very fine two-ply yarn I made about a year ago. I'll upload a photo as soon as I can.
