TRIPLE COFFEE YARN

It has taken me forever but I have finally finished my latest handspun lace yarn design,  a 50/50 British bluefaced leicester/silk, that I have called “Triple Coffee”. It has got much more yardage than I estimated earlier, 1133 yards in one skein of 4oz. , and the total working time for this baby was a whopping 26 hours.  I am very pleased with this yarn. :o) The first photo shows the single handspun cobweb thread prior to plying, and the second photo shows the plied thread (it’s a bit blurry, sorry). The wpi measures 25-27.

“Triple Coffee” is now displayed in my etsy store. I think I will take some time off lace spinning and make a  nice chunky wooly yarn for a change. :o)
