The riverside skein was reeled off today
yielding 258 yards of the fingering weight yarn.
I was afraid I was over-spinning it while plying
but it turned out beautifully balanced; a nice surprise!
I wrote the label and then thought to look up the details on the fiber-
it is not wool/rayon (even though that is what it feels like!
Ramie is what I meant to write....)
but here is a link if you are interested in what it is for real.
(a biodegradable cellulose fiber that is supposed to be mint infused-there is zero mint aroma,
I will add! But it is a very inexpensive spin!)
I don't know what I will make with this skein....
but I finished it!
The first fiber I have spun and skeined this year!
This is the pretty lane next to our driveway that leads to the homes of two widows behind our property. Bill maintains the right-of-way as it is on our property.
The 2-day rainstorm washed out the road farther down from here,
and he had some late night repairs to do so that they could leave their homes!
I like the snake rail fencing down the southern side of the lane!
This fencing is made using railroad ties instead of split logs,
but the zig zag construction is the same.
This view is looking back up towards the main road.
Why do we ride the golf cart down the lane?
To go to pick Mulberries!!!!
