The pound of wool has been spun up, to a little less than 1200 yards of woolly goodness.
That's actually not the ENTIRE pound; there's one skein left waiting to be washed. But it's plied and wound on the niddy-noddy, so the spinning is done. (Roxie, sorry I didn't get a photo of the spun yarn back inside the container that held that huge wad of wool at the start of this adventure; the container is in Ohio, full of more wool, carbon fiber, and llama. But it takes up roughly one fifth the volume the roving did.)
So what did I learn? I can't get enough yardage out of a pound of wool to make a sweater. At least not at three-ply sock weight. I'm thinking two-ply lace weight might do it. So that's the plan for the Bells Fiber. After I practice another year or ten at spinning lace weight singles until they're perfectly smooth. I also learned I can spin a pound of wool in about a month, which blows me away.
I celebrated by immediately starting something else.
This will be the Spice Cake lace weight. The other ply is going to be a spicy-colored tweed. I'm going to see how much yardage I can get out of HALF a pound, this time. It'll be interesting to see how much time it takes.
ETA: Yes, this new spinning project will, eventually, be up for sale on the Etsy shop. It's more merino.
