I just finished spinning a fantastic natural blend of Romney and Shetland wool. This roving was purchased from smokeymountainfibers on etsy and it was a joy to work with!
I found that it drafted so easily and I was able to keep it pretty consistent, although almost thread-like. Because it was so fine, I decided to try doing 3 ply for the first time. And even with 3 ply, it is closest to a fingering weight that worsted.
What's on your wheel?
It must be so relaxing to spin yarn. I am intriqued to see what you create with this wool! ~Val
