Crazy Way To Ply

~Have you heard of plying across the room? Margret did a two-ply and a three-ply by using some of us to help hold up the yarn while plying. Quite a crazy way to ply. This is the fuzzy Lincoln being plied.

Spun un-plied fuzzy Lincoln:

Margaret ties the ends of the yarn together into a slip knot and anchors the other end to a spinning wheel. A student pinches the middle of the strands and holds high off of the floor.

The spinning wheel is spun and the yarn is plied. The pincher keeps moving slowly back until at the end of the yarn. How crazy!
