I have a bit of a tendency to go a long way toward the completion of a big project and then pause near the end. Sometimes for a little while, sometimes for a long while. So here, finally, is the very last of the grey corriedale I dyed months ago and planned to spin during the Tour de Fleece. I loved the two ply yarn I created during the Tour a good bit less than my initial chain plied skein, even though it is what I need if I ever knit that cardigan I dream of.
I found the label for this fleece on the weekend and I started out with 3.5 kg of fleece. I made a true three ply yarn (three singles plied together) from most of the last part…
And chain plied the rest (one single plied on itself in a chain). I think the long pause on this was caused by the way my heart sank when I stopped chain plying it in the first place. I love the distinct colours in the last little leftover skein!
I also spun up a little batt of alpaca dyed in eucalyptus.
Three ply wins again!
