Bounce

The last of the singles that have been sitting around for five months or so have been plied. These are from a fleece I purchased a few years ago. CVM Romeldale which is grey. I dyed some of the locks in greens and teals, then blended those with the undyed grey locks on my drum carder.

This made for a crazy bouncy yarn once spun on spindles and plied on the wheel. This is a two ply, I’d say DK weight. It is soft and fluffy, and really interesting. I think that I am constantly amazed at just how bouncy wool that I process from fleece turns out to be. I have 130 yards here, and a bunch more dyed locks and batts I’ve made in different colors in my stash. This was a test, and it tested well.
