For the time, when my own spinning wheel is arriving (which shouldn't be too long, if everything goes well).
In the meanwhile, to ease the waiting, I am preparing some stuff to spin later.
This one also started in the fall spinning day, where we also dyed some merino to purple with Rita. The hot water dye-bath roughed the wool up, it would have been pretty hard to spin it. No wonder I got my eyes shiny, when I found out that a drumcarder took up temporary residence with Zsu.
But then why stop with simple carding, as I had a handful of white angora, and always loved heathery and tweedy stuff, pulled some of it in in stripes. The result is soft, light and fluffy as a cloud.
I was so satisfied with the result, that right away dug out the bag that contained lotsa different fibers in shades of blue and turqoise.There was erino, mohair locks, lama, and who knows what it it, and I threw the last bunch of angora in it for good measure.
I always loved those colored batts on Etsy-n... now I have my own row, sitting at the back of my living room sofa...like birds on the electric cable.
