Schacht Flatiron - Preparing to Chain Ply and Chain Plying

A special feature video!


Today's adventure includes getting the Schacht Flatiron set up and ready for some chain plying, often called Navajo plying.

I finished up spinning the bobbin of Nest Fiber Studio from the last video (here), so it was all ready to go! Just a refresher, the fiber was from the March 2017 club shipment, and is the Fluorite colorway on Finn wool.

I will talk about the finished yarn (after soaking and thwacking) in Episode 149.

Want to know more about plying yarn? Here's a playlist I will keep updating with new resources.
