The Verdict is In-Almost
I finally finished up all the singles with my new Turkish Spindle and am ready to ply.
It was nice to have the ball all ready to go.
I did have some technical difficulties as my spindle arms would not stay tightly enough on the shaft to get a good spin this time around. It was very annoying. I had to use a masking tape wrap to hold things together.
In the beginning, I had divided this project in two and spun half on a regular drop spindle and half on the Turkish just to see the difference. The left side is the Turkish spun yarn. It is lighter and looser. It has a more halo.
You can see the difference better in skeins. The bottom one is the Turkish two ply. It's not bad-just different. Now to swatch them.
