My Very First Handspun Yarn!

While I am working on figuring out the settings on my spinning wheel to get it to wind onto the bobbin, I continued to spin on my drop spindle.  I had separated my Coopworth roving and was using about ¼ of it, so when I got to the end of that, I decided to quit and ply it.

I used this to unwind the spindle so I could ply it back onto the spindle

Rolled into a center pull ball
Yarn stats:
  • spun on a bottom whorl drop spindle out of Coopworth roving
  • Andean plied on 5/30/11
  • ~26 yds
  • ~1.75 oz
  • ~9 wpi
