I finally started spinning one of the fibers I got from the Hello Yarn Fiber Club. This is the November 2007 fiber – Superwash Corriedale Wool Top. It’s called ‘Toxic’. It has a longer staple than merino, which took some getting used to. I’ve read that Merino is harder for beginner’s to spin because of it’s short staple, but I never had issues with Merino. I think this fiber is more of a challenge.
I started out with a goal of spinning singles but part way through, I decided I wanted a 2 or 3-ply. So I put the singles on a tp roll and have started again. (Talk about fiber with an identity crisis. )
I totally had another post in mind when I found all these photos of my camera.
