Spinning Fever

I have been spinning fiber like crazy this week.



I bought this batt called "Funky Town" from Spinning Wheel Studio



~
She has absolutely wonderful stuff and it's a delight to spin.

~

This is what it looks like on the wheel.

After the wheel....

The texture was wonderful.


~


This is what it looks like soaked, wound, and ready to dry.
~
Notice all the gold and funky fibers.
~
This is what roving looks like when it's not in a batt. Usually it will come braided.

On the wheel after separating the fibers.
Which just means pulling them apart into strips before the spinning begins.

Different View
This is still waiting on the wheel waiting for more spinning action.

I spun this last night. It's alpaca in blues and purples.

Turned out to be about 1.1 oz which is about 40 to 60 yards.
~
I must say, I am in love with this yarn.
I hope my secret sister swapper will love it too. It's a surprise!
~
Off to spin some more!!!!
