Core Spinning

The current issue of Spin-off has an article about adding core spinning to your spinning repitoire. After debating on what to do with the texture batt from Lai Grai and the mohair locks from Bricolage, they are now in action.

I am creating a core spun yarn with extra bits of fluff. Here is how it is shaping up on the wheel.

Isn't it fantastic? There is about a 1/3 of the batt left to spin. I am having a hard time keeping some of the fibers spread apart to lay on top of each other nicely. Eventually it will be okay.

This yarn is going to be a fantastic hat for someone.

Oooh awesome! That looks lovely. Is it balanced? The balance is something I haven't been able to get the hang of yet, but I'm excited to try it again :)

I'm trying very hard to make a balanced yarn. Unfortunately I won't know until it's knitted up. The yarn I used for my sister's scarf/cowl was not. ::sigh::
So hopefully that will be something to work on.
