This is Jacob's wool and even though is a bit rough to the touch is very soft after setting the twist to it. It is very easy to spin and drafts like a dream. One of the things that you have to learn about your spinning , is what kind of yarn is normal for you. It is hard for me to make a thick yarn, but I can make it by plying multiple strands. I really like the two ply, but the three ply is very handsome.
Yesterday I was able to make this happen. This was the Falkland wool and let me tell you, it is a dream to spin. I was mixing it a bit with mohair, and it is fantastic. Mohair can be a bit of a mess, but if you manage it correctly it will give you a nice halo to the wool that you are spinning. I like mohair to spin, I guess it would be fantastic in the blends of Brown Sheep . They sell their mill ends and if you want to spin a great fiber, this would be a nice fiber to spin, I have not done it yet, but I can tell from the Lamb's Pride yarn, (from Brown Sheep), that I have used in projects, that it would be a good experience. Mohair is pretty and it has a long staple as well. So I am going to spin myself to the end of my fiber stash and it will be all published here, with a critique on each fiber.. So far Falkland and Jacob have a thumbs up in my book. Thanks for stopping by!
