Spinning Red Bunny Balls
With the decision made to spin for Tour de Fleece 2010, practice ensued.
This fiber just happened to be within arms reach in the fiber closet. It came to me through a swap last year where I wanted some yarn, she wanted some yarn, and this fiber was thrown in to even out the deal. Pretty sweet for me because it was a dream to spin.
Bonus that this isn't a colorway that would typically land in my fiber stash. It began as 4 oz divided into two even balls that required no pre-drafting.
Soft as can be and at 75% Rambouillet and 25% Angora, it is sure to have a little warmth (not that we need it in South Louisiana). Sold by Carolina Homespun through Elemental Affects
My family was shocked to see me on the wheel. I cannot remember the last time there was time made to spin. It had been nagging at the corner of my mind lately, though.
Bonus that it hung balanced and did not even need to be weighted down for drying.
Time to give some serious thought to my Tour de Fleece goals for this year!
