Last weekend at the Best of the Southwest wool-fest, I picked up a bump of roving from The Natural Twist, a small fiber mill in Albuquerque. Romney, in all these gorgeous dark rainbow-y colors.
I had every intention of taking a picture of the original bump. Because it was beautiful. But, I spun all 8 oz. of watching the presidential debates last night. I spun 2 full bobbins in a few hours. This is rare. This tells you something about the fiber prep. Dreamy, easy to spin, spins-itself kind of stuff.
Ruth, who processed the fiber also happened to mention she loves working with CVM. So, a local-ish mill, great prep, and she loves CVM? I'm going to have to send her a fleece next Spring and see what she can do.
I was going to knit last night, but after coming home to icky smelling dogs, bathing both, I really felt like spinning was the way to go.
Now, tonight, to ply!
Happy Friday and weekend everyone!
