Tour de Fleece Day 5-7

As the tour pounds up into the mountain stages today I have washed and finished up yet another roving.  4 oz of Funky Carolina.  Colorway Summer's End (dreaming of it you know).  It is a Superwash merino/bamboo/nylon blend.  I got 412 yards of fingering weight yarn out of it .... can you say SOCKS?

Question for all of your spinners out there.  Do you figure out the gauge of the yarn before or after you wash it?

  1. After. It usually plumps up a bit in the wash, and you lose yardage.
