Yesterday and today were all about spinning home-grown Romney for the Tour de Fleece! I’m not the fastest spinner on the planet, so a lot of spinning resulted in about 100gms of wool which I love! I thought I’d find natural fibre a bit boring to spin, but as soon as I began, I was smitten… this fleece from my Mum’s sheep and it is so deliciously sheepy! It smells good, it feels so woolly and soft… even though it has been carded and made perfect for spinning, the essence of sheep is still very much there and it spins beautifully!
I’ve got a 300gm bag of it, so will be working my way through it before getting back into the colourful goodness, I’ll need a bit by then!
Have a lovely day
