So here are 4 skeins I have recently spun on my Schacht Ladybug wheel, set to scotch tension:

1. Merino/Tussah silk, approx. 8 ply, 272 yards

2. Brown alpaca, spun from carded fleece – fine/2 ply weight or thinner – 450 yards on this skein:

3. New Zealand Polwarth from in ‘Gypsy Kids’ colourway, 275 yards, about an 8 ply:

4. Merino/tussah silk in ‘Havasu Falls’ colourway from – 175 yards – about a 10 ply thickness
