Spinning...

The yarn above is hand spun wool. It is known as 'novelty' yarn, in that the thickness of the yarn increases and decreases randomly. Experienced spinners find it quite difficult to achieve a yarn as novel as this one. However, those amongst us who have never spun before will achieve results similar to this upon there first attempt...

The Spinners and Weavers Group gave a demonstration at the library and I was fortunate enough to be guided through spinning carded wool into yarn. I suppose the spinners weren't in need of any 'novelty' wool, because they let me keep it. As per instructions I have washed it and it is drying, so I will share a photo of the finished yarn when it is dry.
