Here you have my latest spinning project. It is gotland fiber and it is very soft. Well it is soft once you wash it. I noticed that it was just a little dirty, not much. I found this breed to be a very easy to spin because is a very luxurious fiber. Long staple about 3 to 5 inches. I got 224 grams, with about 386 yards!
Here is another one, this time BFL, 105 grams, with a yield of about 198 yards. It is very springy and cushy. It was easier to spin that what I expected.
What a difference trying to make lace at a 105 grams and 324 yards of yarn. More pictures to come. Thanks for stopping by.
I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I am also sharing my SECRET persona, Lt. DAX, my life in code while living in Bajor. Maybe fiction maybe not is up to you to decide. Peldor Joi!!!
