The Fiber, the Spool and the Spindle

This is some of the stuff that I am finally going to try plying. So far I have only spun singles. I bought this fiber last weekend at Blacksheep. It's Bombyx/Merino from Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks. I purchased from a great vendor, Crown Mountain Farms.Link

This colorway is Moonstone, but I bought a bunch of other fiber from them and was really happy with the quality. Mostly I got 2oz roving to try out and see if I want more. I'm so glad I got the drop spindle in rosewood because I now realize that I needed a much lighter one to work with such fine singles.

I still feel like I don't know quite what I'm doing and I'm trying to pick up on the lingo. It'll take some time, and I suppose at some point I may actually take a class. Posted by Picasa
