So! I accomplished my goal of spinning every day, and got quite a bit done.

tour de fleece skeins

These four skeins are the only ones I spun in their entirety during the Tour – I also plied some silver merino/silk and spun and plied the rest of some tussah silk.

So how about some glamour shots and stats?


Ashland Bay Merino Silk in Cranberry – 300 yards/100g of 2ply, worsted weight.

3ply silk/camel

Spirit Trail silk/camel – 320 yds/4oz of 3ply (chain ply), DK weight.

95% cormo, 5% silk

Foxfire 95% cormo, 5% silk – 350 yds/4oz of 2ply, sport weight.

and one that I snuck in the last few days of the Tour – a skein of 100% cormo that I am absolutely in love with!

100% cormo

100% cormo

100% cormo, 300 yds/100g of 3ply (chain ply), sport weight.

I’m not sure what my grand total is, because of the aforementioned finishing stuff up that was already on the bobbin. But I do know that I’m feeling really re-inspired to get back to the wheel, and I’ve already started some awesome wool/angora. I’m gonna keep spinning down the stash until Rhinebeck!

    Really beautiful work. Now why did you have to go and link to that Foxfire site? I want *everything* on it now. :)
