The Ladybug is empty. The poor girl has been empty for a while now and since she is the only wheel out where I can get to it, I needed to find something in my vast fiber stash to spin.
The rule is that I can only spin commercially prepared fleece on her because, well...because my washed fleeces are usually pretty cruddy. They turn a wheel into a mess so Ladybug is spared the rustic wool in order to keep her pretty.
I saw this BFL/Silk at Rhinebeck last fall in the Misty Mountain Farm booth and had to have it as much for its name as its color.
I thought long and hard about how to spin it. I know from experience that the red and green once plied together will turn into a muddy mess so I separated out the big chunks of color.
I am going to spin this into a 2 ply in hopes of making a shawl someday so I will need 2 bobbins of each color to ply together. There will probably be a bit of waste doing it that way but if it turns out the way I hope it will, it will be worth it.
