Spinning - pumpkin goodness finished
I'm pleased with how this turned out. The yarn is fairly consistent - I showed definite improvement as I worked my way through the fiber.
I've since learned that this fiber was not as well prepared as it could have been. The fiber was a bit matted and I had to pre-draft it as I went along. I think a spinner who uses a wheel would have been frustrated, but a spindle spinner would probably get along with it better. I probably will buy from this seller again because it was affordable - hopefully with more experience, the fiber will improve.
Yardage: 312 yards
Weight: 4 oz, Fingering
WPI: about 14.
I'm thinking of making this scarf with this yarn.
