I have finished spinning the singles from the two samples of merino, tussah silk, and camel. They weighed in at about a half ounce each. I wound them into balls for plying, but have not measured them, so I don't really know what the plied yardage will be. The color in the photos does not do justice to the actual colors. They are much more vibrant than they appear. See this previous post for a more accurate representation of the colors.
(One thing I've noticed when posting photos from my iPhone to the blog is that the format is larger than when I use my non-cell phone camera. In the drafts and previews, the photos seem fine, but when the blog is posted, the larger format is too big and the right side of the photos gets cut off. Any suggestions?)
Respect the Spindle. Since I've been winding the strands together, I seem to be having better plying results, especially when plying more than two strands. I will be plying this tonight and hope to post the results tomorrow.
