Working with fine wool is still a problem for me. The less you handle it before spinning the better. Using a grip, I fashioned a sort of hackle out of my mini combs and then dizzed a fine strand of continuous wool that was pretty nepp free from my newly washed brown Merino.
So far so good, until I began to spin it. I set my wheel up on the deck and settled in for a nice afternoon. However, in order to get enough twist, I had to peddle like a maniac. I need to mention that it was another 90 plus degree day here in the Nation's Capitol so I gave up and went back inside.
