Saturday spinning update: yarn!

At long last I finished spinning up the Briar Rose BFL yarn. I filled the 3 bobbins and plied them together using my wonderful smooth TravelKate.

The result is about 370 yards in 175g. As usual, I’ve got no particular plan for it, but it’s a wonderful colour and I’ve got plenty of it.

After such a long spin, I decided to take a break and spin up a small 50g amount of BFL from Fleece Artist in beautiful greens. This seemed to want to be thicker, so I’ve ended up with a 2-ply yarn that is about 80 yards in 58g. It’s nice and light and fluffy – perfect for a hat or something like that.
