i'm a bit overdue on the April handspun. i managed to spin quite a bit last month.
Chain-plied sportweight Hello Yarn superwash BFL in Cattails
379yds/120g, spun longdraw, soaked and thwacked to finish
Superwash BFL is not my favorite. it had that somewhat plastic-y feeling of superwash and it was very easy to overtwist and end up with singles that felt like wire. the yarn is also lacking in elasticity. i love merino, targhee, and cvm because of the bounciness. Superwash BFL is kind of meh.
the colors, on the other hand, are awesome. i chain-plied to preserve the short color repeats. i was afraid that if i used a traditional ply the final skein would look muddy.
i'm planning to knit socks with these so i reserve the right to change my mind on superwash BFL if the socks end up made of awesome. i would love to cast-on for these soon but i owe Spicy a pair of May socks so i'm not sure when i'll get to it.
