Tour de Fleece 2018

I had a relatively quiet Tour de Fleece this year, mostly because I was away for a week towards the end of it, so I knew I wouldn’t get much done.

I initially got out all of my fibre with the intention of spinning it up:

This included (going anti-clockwise from the right) 291g of Raven’s Wing gradient, 302g of Dephinium gradient, 293g of Hummingbird gradient, 280g of Mermaid’s Lair gradient, 280g of Mineralise gradient and 300g of a cashmere, silk and BFL gradient.

I have made a collage of my daily progress pics:

And the finished skeins came out like this:


1,376 yards of 2-ply fingering weight Raven’s Wing gradient.



946 yards of 2-ply DK weight Delphinium gradient.


1,178 yards of 2-ply fingering weight Hummingbird gradient.


A total of 3,500 yards spun up over the course of the Tour de France/Fleece.
