Fiber Friday! Shipwreck by SweetGeorgia Yarns

Fiber/ Spinning




During the Chicago Yarn Crawl I was on the hunt to grab some fiber…locally.  I was in luck the shop, Fiberesta club  has Sweet Georgia yarns!  I picked up 2 braids of Shipwreck.


PLAN: Worsted spun, Navajo ply and remain consistent!  I really wanted a stron consistent yarn with no overspun bits.  Next time I should sample.ack I am always so excited to start a project!

This is a BFL Silk 75%BFL and 25% Tussah Silk-nonsuperwash so I better remember that!


I spun this on my matchless using the woolee winder and an akerworks bobbin. Let me tell you I packed that bobbin..ply chicken anyone! lol.  I kept squishing it down..


There was such deep jewel tones at different points of the spin.

I did twist checks often.


Ply Chicken anyone!…….I was cutting it close!


Gave it a good bath in Eucalan Wrapture….I love the smell of this stuff!
