Spinning FO: Burning Embers Silk
So that's what skein winders are for! This is 2 ply silk, looking suspiciously thin:
2oz hand-dyed tussah silk from Spunky Eclectic in Burning Embers
364 yds, wheel-spun 2 ply, fingering to laceweight.
Three hundred and sixty four yards! Skeined this on a niddy noddy and it took a while. I spun it as an experiment to see how thin I could get the singles. Thin silk was easier to achieve than thin wool, but I made the goal of fingering weight or thinner. Also learned more about what the tension on the wheel should be with this skein. I think it turned out pretty well.
