You may recall that I recently got these merino and silk lap waste from Wingham Wool Work. This is the first time I ever got a batt with my roving and it was a dream to spin. I didn’t spin the green at the top left as I already have a large amount of this roving that I spun from a previous order, and nor did I spin the two with red. So, these are the singles I spun below.
I like to spin with what I call the ball ply method, otherwise known as center pull ball plying method. No wool gets wasted as you are basically plying the yarn on itself. I decided to ply the last ball on the top right with the two in the next row below on the left.
I really like how the pink and brown look together. Brown goes with every color as all three primary colors mixed together make brown. Here are some close-ups.
I love how the pink batt turned out. This is probably the thinnest yarn I have spun yet. I really enjoy spinning the lap waste. You never know how the yarn is going to turn out. The yarn is so fluffy and soft you just want to cuddle it. 🙂
