Finale of @spintogether. A close up of the yarn made with my Bee Hummingbird and Kuchulu on my @akerworks Super Skeiner. #spinnersofinstagram #spinallthethings #spinallthefiber #spinstagram #spinningyarn #fleece2yarn #handspunstagram #igspinners #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spintogether #spintogether2019 #akerworks #akerworkssuperskeiner #superskeiner #jenkinsturkishspindle


Finale of @spintogether. I spun 3.4g of Super Fine Merino on my Jenkins Bee Hummingbird and plied it on itself on my new Kuchulu. I love how easy it is to create different skein lengths on the @akerworks Super Skeiner. For this skein I set it up as 1 yard and ended up with a total of 32 yards. Will be interesting to see the shrinkage ratio after washing. #spinnersofinstagram #spinallthethings #spinallthefiber #spinstagram #spinningyarn #fleece2yarn #handspunstagram #igspinners #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spintogether #spintogether2019 #akerworkssuperskeiner #superskeiner #jenkinsturkishspindle

Finale of @spintogether. My one goal for this event was to spin one braid as beautifully as I could. I’m quite pleased with how this turned out despite a few issues I had with it. I ended up with a total of 456 yards of Navajo plied yarn(unwashed of course so it’ll loose some) and this added 1,824 yards to my Team’s total. #spinnersofinstagram #spinallthethings #spinallthefiber #spinstagram #spinningyarn #fleece2yarn #handspunstagram #igspinners #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spintogether #spintogether2019 #daedalusspinningwheels #starlingspinner #akerworks #akerworkssuperskeiner #superskeiner
