September spun samples from The Bear Necessities

It's great that we're starting to see the samples from the boxes spun up already and here's another. I had a spare sample of the Peacock BFL left after sending mine in for the boxes so I spun it up and am really pleased with the results. Here's a before and after shot of the single I spun and the finished yarn. Before spinning it, I split the sample into quarters along it's length so that the colours would be repeated along the length of the single. I then I n-plied it to get a 3ply yarn and to keep the colour repeats. There's around 19m at 12 wpi and all in all I'm rather pleased with it.

Spun already!

Some people are so quick - I posted the first lot of samples out last Friday and there are already pictures on Ravelry (FibreholicsUK) of fibre that has been spun and although there isn't a photo a finished item! We are really pleased to find people happy to share what they have spun/made. Thanks to you all for you support!
