pinha (spun)

The natural greyish brown fleece of the Berrichon cross made me think immediately of the pine cones - “pinha” - that litter the forest floors of the valley at this time of year.


Ingredients: 38g of washed and carded wool. The fibre used was black Berrichon cross, from Gèdre.
Spinning: Two singles spun from rolags in the Z direction, using a semi-worsted technique. .  
Plying: two singles plied in the S direction until balanced. 

Finishing: Wound off into a skein, washed and dried weighted to set the ply.

Quantity: 35g giving 38m of finished yarn
WPI: 9
Yarn Weight: DK
