Personal Best

100 grams of BFL fibre spun on the Ashford Traveller using the 14:1 ratio. Plied 2ply at 10:1.

Three skeins of 2ply worsted spun, totalling 930 yards. That’s 1860 yards of singles – a mile plus a sprint. Seems to be approximately 30 wpi.

Finished weight 113g. I wasted a fair amount, so this must have been a very generous package of fibre from Natalie.

This is my finest spin to date.

It does not mean that I am a great spinner. Not by any means. If I had been anything like good, I would have got closer to the 600 yards that I was aiming for. It is better spinning though, and I seem to be spinning faster.

Now, what shall I make of it? Do you have any ideas?

I’m calling it Athletics Blue…

    Why not a Spinning Blue? 🙂
