Ply-on-the-Fly

150123_1

I have started spinning for Voolenvine’s D-SPAKAL. I will spinn about 340 meter (375 yards) of yarn on a drop spindle and then knit a cowl (or other neck warmer) from it.

Inspired by Kristen of Voolenvine, I am using the Navajo Ply-on-the-Fly technique that allows me to create a three-ply yarn instantly, saving time for washing and plying later. The tops is white, undyed Southdown from World of Wool. It is really easy to draft and lovely to work with. It smells really good and creates a soft and squishy yarn.
