Nile is the new comer to the shop. What started out as a 3 ply Navajo chained yarn has become a true 3 ply. Mainly because I can't chain fast enough to keep up with the wheel. A mercenized cotton yarn, this is another of my Custom Spun yarns. While not as brilliant of an idea and the birth of Isis it's still a beautiful yarn. Again, it takes about 2 hours to spin up 150 yards of it, in a 2 step process. In this case Nile is dyed after it's spun and had a nice long bath and hanging to even out and set the twist.
