A Mountainous Cloud of Fiber
So...a while ago I ordered multiple pounds of an organic cotton/merino blend. It came, and I tried to spin it...and I hated it. The fibers were short and my yarn kept breaking. In a random burst of experimentation, I dyed it all, and tried spinning it again...and this time I loved it. It may be that I've gotten used to spinning on a fast flyer, or that I'm just a more experienced spinner now...I've no idea. Anyhow, take a peek, the yarn is so soft and smooth...I'll have a hard time not keeping it all myself.
