I love my Matchless.
This has to be the most beautiful yarn I have made to date.
This is 50% Blue-faced Leicester and 50% silk fiber from Julie Spins. The original braid looks like this:
Five ounces of gradient dyed beauty. I simply split the braid lengthwise and spun it worsted. I spun the singles with the Scotch tension on the Matchless, but plied using the Double Drive feature. The result is a two-ply, light fingering weight yarn, about 18 wraps per inch gradient yarn. I got an amazing 600 yards out of this. I think it is the high silk content that contributed to the high yardage.
It is so pretty.
I love BFL.
I love the Matchless.
I could not get enough of this!
