I finished spinning the Coopworth at home and made it back down to the shop last Saturday and was able to turn it into a 3-ply yarn. Here it hangs drying. Wet it was 29 inches long~dry it shrank up to 27.
Here it is dry.
The instructor said to count the strands of yarn and multiply by @1.5 to get yardage. It turned to be about 165 yards. I didn't realize until I was done plying that it seemed to be a little too loose. Next time I will be more aware. All in all I enjoyed this wool from carding to spinning to plying....hmmmm wonder how it will knit up. I am looking forward to that. I had originally thought I would make mittens, but I am not sure now.
