Tour de Fleece Day 1

Here is my accomplishment for Day 1 of the Tour de Fleece. 
 I spun up 4 oz of superwash Merino wool from Wild Hare Fiber Studio.  
Colorway: Grateful Dyed
This is about 2 1/2 hours of spinning. 
PHEW! spinning fine takes a long time!
I am hoping that once this is plied, it will be a light sock weight yarn. 

This is 1/2 of my goal for Team Kromski.
Also this was in my "stash" so I will include this in my "Stashbusters" team
I tried a new technique, spinning fine, for the Climbers team.

  1. That looks sooooo good! I can't wait to see how it looks when it is plyed!

    1. I'm going to try to at least get started on spinning up the black alpaca that I am plying it with today.

  2. LOVE that fiber!!!! Love love love!!!

    1. I have had it for months and was just afraid to start spinning it because I couldn't figure out what to do with it. I hope to ply it with black alpaca tomorrow. I am excited and nervous, because I really want it to turn out nice!
