Spinning, Wool

Spinning clouds

My youngest always says I’m spinning white fluffy clouds when I spin this Targhee Debouillet cross. And I definitely feel that way when I’m spinning. I tried to leave a little lanolin in the wool when I scoured to keep it soft and smooth. I plan to use this as warp on a weaving project. Maybe with carded singles as the weft.

I’ve already spun one bobbin of thin singles and I’m working on the second. I’m using the combed nests with these singles. I’ve got three carded rolags in my bowl but I might use them for a needle felting project instead as they got too tight and are difficult to draft.
