My journey into the world of weaving

Finishing the cleaning of the fleece

Leave a comment

This morning, I am washing the last of the fleece. This has taken quite a while!

I have carded a bunch into rolags. My rolags are short and squat. I am rolling them with the short length of what I have carded.

I spun up a bobbin of the fiber and last night, I plied with another fiber. I’ll wash that today and see how it looks. Plying on the Beauty went easily actually. She is still slow and she peddles harder than the Louet. It takes more effort.

I have a few days off and my attention will turn toward my weaving. I have finished 4 facecloths. I think I may have two more to go.

I also need to think about what goes on the loom next! It would be easy to do another set of scarves. But maybe I want to do something a little different. I have to work on that in the next couple of days.

So hurrah for time off!
