My first skein which was the color Wolf and was way over spun when I plied, is the reason I didn't want to ply on the wheel. So I used my new toy Ball Winder (a gift from my sister,brother in-law, and niece) and made a center pull ball from my bobbin.
In all the pictures, the darker brown is more correct to color.
Can I tell you that it worked marvelously?!?!?! It truly did, so happy with it.
It was a dream to spin from this.
I held the outside of the ball and inside of the ball together, for two strands held together and Navajo-plied them to make a 6-ply yarn.
I plied from the center and outside, holding two strands together and Navajo-plying them for a 6ply yarn. This one turned out to be about a fingering. I got 158 yards. By general sock weight standards I should have been able to get more like 400 yards with 3.5 oz of roving, but my plies are very dense and not lofty. I checked the wraps per inch, I get 16.5, which places it in the fingering or sport weight category depending on which chart you believe.
I really like the way it turned out.
It's not soft enough for me to wear next to my neck, so I am not sure what I will do with it.
