Yarn, Yarn and more yarn

It has been awhile since my last post but I have been working with fiber a lot.  At this moment I have 4 skeins of plied hand spun completed and ready to be washed and measured.  They were all created on my Louet spinning wheel over a 2 week time period.  There is definitely something soothing about spinning on the wheel.  I love my Russian spindles and Navajo but found joy sitting down at the wheel and watching movies while creating yarn.

I still have some Falkland yarn to ply and have just started to spin up some Correidale roving.  The Corriedale is very spongy and has a much different feel to it then BFL and Shetland wool.  My long draw technique is getting some good use in spinning this wool and it is a deep brown color.

My spring cleaning allowed me to organize and see all of the fiber I have collected over the past few years.  At least now all my fiber is in clear totes and with this summer’s farmers market appearances the stash should be reduced quite a bit.
