A Soft Morning



Starting to get the hang of my new Spinolution Mach 11 wheel and have spun this yarn using the high ratios.  It is 12 wpi  and this weighs 130 grams and has 270.5 meters.  It still takes much longer to spin than a thicker yarn but it would take hours if I tried to do it on my lovely old Donegal  and my leg would have to work really hard.  The yarn is a soft grey/purple with Sugar Plum Angelina through it.  It would knit up to make a beautiful evening wrap.   I have more to spin but each skein takes me at least 2 evenings to make.
I have listed it on Etsyhttps://www.etsy.com/listing/159496704/a-soft-morning-wensleydale-x-yarn-130?ref=shop_home_active
