This is one ginormous ball of yarn! This 9.7 oz of Merino was spun up on Starla my Startling Mini pictures here and then was Navajo plied on Bumbles my Starling XL. I tie dyed it afterwards using the technique @woolwench wrote about in the first issue of tinyStudio Creative Life Magazine. I’ll be be knitting this up into. Peace Cowl and a pair of mitts. Starling Mini made by me and designed by @daedalusspinningwheels. #daedalusspinningwheels #electricspinningwheel #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #espinner #spinningyarn #handspunstagram #igspinners #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #starlingspinner #Akerworks #AkerworksYarnCaddy #YarnCaddy #karbonzneedles


Lucas is admiring the hand wound ball of Merino. When I weighed the skein it was 9.8 oz and now mysteriously it only weighs 9.7... it makes me wonder if Lucas stole some for his web nest. Jumping spiders use their silk for their bungee jumping as well as for a protective nest they hunker down in while resting or when molting. Anywho I made a swatch yesterday and it’s going to work out beautifully for the project I dyed it up for. #daedalusspinningwheels #electricspinningwheel #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #espinner #spinningyarn #handspunstagram #igspinners #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #starlingspinner


The next spindle in the series is the Turkish Delight. This was my very first Jenkins Spindle. To learn more about spinning across a flock of Turkish Spindles check out my article in the Summer 2019 issue of @plymagazine about Supended Spindles.
