Hand Spun Wool on Bobbin and Niddy Noddy
Saint Distaff Day,
Well I felt my faithful Ashford Spinning Wheel deserved a really good make over and a bit of pampering to start the new year of spinning -so a visit to Wright Turned workshop (aka Skipper).
2 Bobbins of single thread on Niddy Noddy
PlyingPlying the threads together to produce 2 ply yarn and filling a new bobbin on the wheel.
You can see the wool thread held by my 3rd and 4th finger and the plied twisted yarn feeding up away from my thumb and index finger.
Bobbin full of 2Ply Wool Yarn
Thrilled with the results!
I still have to sett the yarns by washing them, but I have some more lovely Stash to start 2018 knitting and weaving projects.
