Spinning - wheel & spindle
I've been spinning a lot lately! I think it's the first time I've done any considerable amount of spinning since the grandson came to live with us 3-1/2 years ago.
This is from rolags by The Wooly Witch, who is unfortunately no longer selling fiber. The colorway is Maleficent - black and dark purple, with some sparklies. It is lovely, drafts nicely, and spins up beautifully. I believe I had 4 packages; each package had 4 rolags. I spun up two packages onto one bobbin, and this is almost one package (I think I have one rolag left from that one, and one more package to go before I ply.)
I have also been playing with some CVM from Long Ridge Farm, and a Trillium drop spindle from Bull Sheep Fibery on Etsy.
I'm going to consider this practice for a potential Longest Thread entry. The
I love this spindle! It's about 7 grams in weight.
I also got a great Spinning Box this week. This has undoubtedly contributed to my continued enthusiasm with my spinning!
