Out of the Bag

The ITW November Club fiber will be arriving in the mail this week.

While I wait for it's arrival I'm prepping "Inevitable Betrayal", Gray Cheviot, 4 oz.



Beautiful braid out of the bag.


 Fiber carefully unfurled.



The fiber is split in half vertically. One half is set aside. The other half is further split in half (2), then again (4), then again (8).

The big ball-o-fiber will be spun on one bobbin. The skinny balls will be spun on a second bobbin, then the two will be plied together. This is called a fractal spin.
