The 2-ply yarn I spun up from Spunky Eclectic BFL in Mahogany came out around 15 wpi, and I swatched it on size 5 needles which came out a bit too loose, then I switched to size 4’s which gave me 5 2/3 stitches to the inch with a nice, soft fabric. I can’t say what I’m going to do with it though, since it may be a gift. Sorry!

Instead, here’s the SakinaNeedles roving all finished and skeined up. It’s a lot tighter and not as soft as my first wheelspun, which I guess would be better for things like socks. I’m going to finish the rest of the roving with the same amount of twist.
