Here’s my first finished spinning for the Tour de Fleece:
It’s 100g of Black Welsh Mountain fibre that I bought from World of Wool. I wanted to try out this fibre as I’d been promised a fleece, but apparently the poor old sheep are still wearing it (and must be sweating away given the weather at the moment). It was my first go at using my Ladybug in Double Drive and it worked out OK, althought I found the takeup a bit light for my taste. Thanks to the Schacht Spinners group on Ravelry for helping me to get all my string and whorls the right way round – I will try and write up what went where soon.
How do you do it so thinly? I wish! Beautiful wool and lovely work!
