What's On The Wheel....

.......currently on the wheel is a hand dyed Rambouillet top. I bought 2 oz. just to give it a try.
So far I'm enjoying the spin. It likes to be spun from the end....not from the fold (which is my preference). It was hard trying to make sure the spots of green in the top came through in the photo.

Just off the wheel is a merino/ organic polwarth/firestar/silk blend. Liked the color so bought a 2 oz, batt. Was not my favorite spin though. The fiber was grabby in places. The firestar was in random bunches throughout the batt. Not real enjoyable. The finished yarn is very pretty though. Ended up with 430 yards of a 2-ply lace weight. I'm hoping it will be more fun to knit than it was to spin.
