I just Love my new jumbo plying head for my Lendrum wheel. I have been struggling for just ever to come up with thick yarn. I started spinning and hopped immediately to laceweight then have been trying to claw my way back to the fat stuff every since. Here’s 3.4 oz of worsted weight merino. I acid dyed it then plyed it with a solid white. I’m very happy:>.
The plying head was very easy to put on the spinning wheel and not too cumbersome. I haven’t had a chance to explore all the ratios yet but am very happy knowing that this 3.4 oz skein hardly took up half of the bobbin. I’d like to be plying 4 oz skeins with this. My smaller bobbins really only seem to handle about 2 ozs a piece so that would be perfect. I’m considering spinning some of the natural dyed bfl from this summer and seeing how I like it:>.
