So I finally dove into Tango. I landed on making it into a light DK or fingering weight yarn, but I messed with the colors a bit. I broke it into color sections – there were six repeats – and fluffed them a bit in order to open up the compacted fibers, then spun two bobbins and plied them together. I’m really happy with the final result.
Here’s the finished skein!
I have spun so much of this over the years that I thought I’d actually be a little bored, but it entranced me just as much this time as it did the first time I spun it. I’m really pleased with the way the colors blended on this skein in particular. You can see where there’s some marling as colors shift; unlike my previous skeins, the color changes should be more organic instead of as defined as they were on previous ones.
And now I gotta decide what to do next!
