Supercoil Chiengora

Weekends don't usually afford me much time to spin. But this being a holiday Monday, I carved out a wee bit of time to try making supercoil yarn with nothing but the 2 fibers from Project Spinway's Challenge 1. That's one of the stipulations for the competition - that we use no other materials than the two items chosen blindly from our stash.

I started with a 2ply yarn blended from an equal mix of the Romney and "Bruno" that I posted on Sunday (it's the last sample). Then I carded up a handful of "Bruno" and spun a thick and thin, lumpy, bumpy single. Following various hints on youtube I produced this:

Bruno Supercoil Yarn!

I think it's quite exciting.
