Day 20 Tour De Fleece 2011 - Navajo plied Yak Yarn
I did it, I did it! I managed to Navajo ply. I have managed this new to me method, by no means have I mastered it but I have managed to Navajo ply. I understand the principal, it would be great when I have practiced more and can manage a nice even ply. Navajo is a method of ply from a single bobbin. You make a large, long slip knot and work a kind of extended finger knit chain with spin to ply, if you google it or search Youtube you can easily find tutorials explaining far more succinctly than I can manage. The resulting yarn is a three ply. I love Yak yarn and would really like to make a big project in this fibre or just buy a Yak hair cardigan.
