The Tour de Fleece has officially begun. That means for the next few weeks I will be boring you to death with way too many posts about fiber.
Stuff like this. I've been peddling like a madman all week trying to get the Ladybug free so I could start something new today. This superwash Merino has been hogging the wheel since early spring.
This is my official TdF entry.
I picked it up at this year's MDSW. It was a festival colorway. I love festival colorways.
The Traveler still has the Merino fleece experiment on it and will have for ages.
I've got a giant tub of locks I am spinning one by one in a rather willy nilly fashion.
The Traditional is empty. I'm not sure what's going on her.
I am supposed to be spinning all the rolags I should have made from the fleece of this little Miss but alas....the wet spring and the early hot summer squashed my dreams for fleece washing this year. I may do a handful or two but I really don't even want to go out to the fleece shed at the moment. It's that bad out there.
I haven't even finished the sample from the few rolags I did manage to get done back in May. Maybe that should be my only goal this year.
Having said all that, what I really want to do for the next three weeks is spin this. It's cotton. It's hard to spin but I like the idea of cotton. It's just too hot and humid to have any nice thoughts about wool.
