Purple Gekko, 2ply Handspun......



All finished!! This is my second "Tour de Fleece" yarn, “Purple Gekko”
This 2 ply averages between 5 and 8 WPI….so nice and slubby and chunky :D
137yds/125m…96g
One ply of Southern Cross Fibres Polwarth "Gecko" and the other a spiral dyed merino ply...both spun on my new Easy Spin wheel :D
One of my personal challenges for the Tour was to try and rekindle a love for 2ply, and it's worked as I love it, it's sooooo squooshy :)
