This fleece has several colors in it. I'm going to divide it into the 3 main colors and spin each separately and then ply. I bought a Spinner's Control Card at MDSW and am hoping it will help me get more consistent singles.
I tried using the picker to pick the locks, but since the locks are so long, it really only tore them. I don't have hand combs, but I do have dog thingy and I use it to flick the locks open. What a difference.
I'm also sampling this time. I took 2 of each lock, spun it my normal semi-worsted spin. I spun "S" and plied "Z". I got a wpi of 13. I knit a swatch:
At this point I like all three of them. I haven't decided on a final use for the yarn. My scale needs a new battery so I can't weight it yet.
I'm going to spin the next sample worsted to see the differences.
