Last year, I purchased two 4-ounce braids of Malabrigo Nube Merino roving in the Archangel colorway, with the intention of playing around with it. I took one braid, spun it end to end, the first half on one bobbin, the second half on another bobbin, then plied the two singles together. The other braid I spun end to end on one bobbin, then I chain plied the singles.
I present, for you viewing pleasure, the results, with minimal commentary. I’ll let the fiber speak for itself. 🙂
Thanks. I’m happy with how it turned out, and I think both skeins want to become fingerless mitts. 🙂
Oh, those are beautiful! I think I’d pick the two-ply first, but hey, I’d be happy to take either. Nice work!
Thank you. I’m rather partial to the 2-ply myself, but I like barber-pole yarn a lot.
