Navajo Plying

10637739_10204473845948195_1079466428_nMy friend Maven asked me to re-spin some silk for her.  The yarn was a lace weight and she wanted it a little thicker so she could use it.  It is more a sock or sport weight now. The first photo is how the yarn came to me.  The second and third photo is what the yarn is and dye lot encase someone likes it you can look for it.
If you want to see what it looked like after it was respun please go to the read-more area of this post
The 4th and 5th photos are of it re-spun with a Navajo ply technique one on the spinning wheel and the other off after it was wet and hung to get out kinks and then put back into hanks for shipping.
This type of plying which makes a spun yarn three times thicker than before it was re-plied.  It also make a more tweed like look to the yarn.  Below if the finished product back in hanks to be shipped to my friend today in New York.  Bad lighting on the photo below I will try and take another photo before I ship the yarn and update this post.
