Mama in a spin
I've been doing a lot more spinning lately - yay. It kind of got forgotten for a while, other things to do or just tiredness and various members of the family recovering from colds, etc.
Some Dorset Horn (otherwise known as Poll Dorset) skeins washed and ready to use, wind into balls or maybe a bit of dyeing?
Some Jacobs brown/black fleece separated and spun, a few more rolags to spin and then this will be ready to ply. I haven't separated the colours before as I like how they blend together, but just thought I'd a bobbin or two like this.
At my evening lesson I go to, I have recently been experimenting with blending colours (just hand plied) and fibres and have spun some synthetics which are quite different to spin - need to put more spin in them as they have little or no crimp.
