Tour de Fleece 2013 - stage twelve

Next year I will spin something thicker.  Maybe a nice sock weight single from alpaca, wool, silk blend?  All white, ready for dyeing.  That would be nice.  But I would be happy with anything so long as it is thicker.

Have a look at this.

It may not look it in the photo, but it's cobweb.  Ply two of them together and you have sewing thread.  In other words, it is thin yarn.  It is also about half an hour of spinning.  I'm a quick enough spinner, and there is significant yardage on that bobbin, but it's just doesn't make for impressive photography.  Especially when we are taking daily updates.

So next year, thicker yarn is in order.

It is hard to belive it is handspun. It is so fine it could be made in factory too. Well done!
