That's a BIG Bobbin!
I collected all the fiber samples I received from the last three months worth of the Phat Fiber Sample Boxes, carded them together into three gorgeous batts and spun them all on my Lendrum. I like to spin using my jumbo flier and the nice big bobbins. I decided to weigh this one after it was full to see how much the bobbin could hold. I actually think I could have gotten a bit more on it, but I ran out of fiber. The bobbin itself weighs 6 ounces, so I deducted that from the total weight and I was amazed to see that it weighed in at exactly 8 ounces of handspun! Now I need to decide how to ply it. It's really pretty fiber from all of the Phat Fiber Posse, and even though there were so many different colors, they look great together!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Blessings Friends!
