After last weekend's spinning bender, I needed something else on the wheels. This is what I'm working on with the Symphony. I have over 2 pounds of this Targhee that I washed, dyed half of it (it came out darker than I wanted), and sent out to be processed into roving. (If you dye your fiber half at a time, if you get it too dark, just leave the other half white and card the two halves together - TA DA!) The roving is a bit neppy, which didn't surprise me too much since the staple length of this particular wool is pretty short, and the sheep clearly had a lot of fun being a sheep (I know this because I went through the raw fleece and saw what the sheep had gotten into - good times). I'm spinning this semi-woolen to keep it soft and lofty and letting the neps happen as they want to. It will be a 3 ply, which will help to make the neps less noticeable, but the finished yarn should still be more textured than my usual yarn. I'm not entirely sure what I want to use this yarn for, the finished yarn will probably be in the worsted weight range and it will definitely be next-to-skin soft. I had considered a twin set, but I think the finished yarn weight will be too heavy for the weight I like twin sets (personally, sport weight yarn is about as heavy as I want for a twin set). It might make a wonderful cabled pullover - something to toss on over jeans and just snuggle into, but for now, I need to get the yarn spun up.
