I finished spinning another three bobbins of the Romedale I mentioned earlier this month. This has been one of the most enjoyable fibers I have spun. I can't say enough about it. The color is gorgeous, a soft reddish brown. It makes me think of the very good cinnamon that I add to my morning coffee.
The three skeins have approx. 800 yds. of 3 ply worsted wt. There is more fiber left to spin and I'm taking my time. The past few week I've had only stolen minutes (or hours) to spin . This morning I plied with my first cup of coffee, yesterday just before I made supper. I've been spinning the singles on a Schacht and plying on a Dixon. The Schacht is in front of my glass patio door, overlooking the woods. The view from my Dixon looks west to the hills as they get first light and the sunset in the afternoon. It's my busy season and this is a perfect project to relax with. I'm making it last.
It looks like there will be enough for a sweater. I was hoping.
