In January, my good friend C added me to a couple of awesome FB spinning groups. One of them was Eat, Sleep, Spin which has a guided technique each month. For February, that was fractal spinning.
Fractal spinning is a technique for dyed top in which you split a braid such as this in half vertically. The first half is spun straight from end to end to make a single. The second half is divided, again vertically, into several strips (colors oriented the same way) and are spun end to end to end to make a second single. The two singles are plied together to achieve a beautiful color progression in which every so often both plies are the same color.
I already had, in my stash (SEE I can use my stash!), the perfect hand dyed roving. 4.25 oz of beautiful Corriedale combed top dyed by my dear friend C and ordered from her Etsy shop TheHippieHomemaker (shameless plug).
Beautiful isn’t it?
It turned out perfect! 350 yards of Fingering weight heaven.
What do you think?
