Spinning wool is a rythmical slow series of steps. We don't have sheep of our own nor do we sheer the wool so my steps start with aquiring a fleece.
The fleece is easier to spin once the fibers have been processed . I'm hand combing into fluff.
My first sample was light and fluffy. Good for hats , mittens and maybe lace but I'm thinking of making a sweater. The patterns I seem to like require a firmer yarn so a second sample.
Sample number 2 is spun from the end closest to the sheeps skin. It produced a firmer smoother yarn. Better for garments.
NOW I'm off to find the box of knitting needles to test the new yarn.
Meanwhile the slow steps of combing the wool confinues.
What are you woring on ? I hope it makes you happy. Terry
