My first attempt at spinning wool. I am pretty happy with it and am going to ply it together.
This is Optim from The Thylacine also ... it feels beautiful (Merlin likes it too). I spun this last night.
On Thursday I had a go at spinning some raw Merino wool ... it felt beautiful and fine. This is a single strand that I spun ... quite happy with how fine I can get it ... Icould use this in my crochet lace no problems.
This is the same spun single plied together.
I am enjoying the change of pace that spinning brings. You have to have something you do for yourself craft wise.
Happy Spinning for now ... Jane x
