I mentioned I’d been working with Marcello’s fiber, and I’m ready to show off my first product with year’s new roving. This is “Earth Signs”.
I was trying for a medium weight worsted-ish yarn (to spin proper worsted, you have to run the un-spun fiber through a disk with a small hole it it called a diz, which aligns the hairs). Marcello’s fiber is just so darn fluffy, it ended up a little chunkier than I intended.
I couldn’t capture the color. It’s somewhere between the top picture, which is too orange, and the bottom one, which is too dark. It’s a touch bulkier than the other yarns in this order, “Clouds over Tuscany“ and “Deep Roots“, but I’m still exceedingly pleased with it.
