Tour de Fleece 2022

It’s that time of year again. I’m sure it rolls around quicker every year, a bit like Christmas. Maybe it’s my age…

Anyway I always look forward to the Tour as it usually comes at the point where my crafting mojo has got up and left so it’s good to get back in the saddle. I’m going to spend some time working on my spinning techniques. I say this every year and never do, but this year I really mean it. I’d like to work on neatening up my joins and thinking a bit more about what I want to be spinning. I like a default brainless spin but these are the spins that always end up in stash because I don’t know what to do with them.

Tour plans

So here are my plans for this year’s Tour. From L-R:

  • two braids from Velvet Sixpence that I picked up at Wonder Wool this year. I don’t really have much of a plan for these yet so I’ll see how things go
  • Some down breed fibres for a breed study
  • A Fellview Fibres merino/cashmere/silk blend I want to try and spin as a lace weight
  • The final braid in a Hilltop Cloud fade sweater spin. It’s been a little while since I spun the last one so I’m hoping I can keep the consistency.

So these are my bigger plans but I have some bits and pieces for playing around with too. For now I still have fibre on the wheel to finish off so I’ll get on with plying that and then see what to work on next.

Happy Tour everyone!

  1. I love that the Tour comes mid-year, as I tend to lose some steam right about now, and it helps get me back in the groove so I can stumble through the hot summer months towards fall. Love your choices for the Tour and hope you enjoy spinning all of those!
