There has been some spinning going on in the evenings. As I prepare Suffolk fleece for spinning, I’ve been spinning yarn for #tuffsocksnaturally. The top image is one of the recent skeins with more ply twist than previously. However, there has also been some regular spinning. Below, the fleece of a lawn mowing pet sheep who might be a Polwarth–the sheep belongs to a friend of a friend and the fleece is rather soft and lovely, while my preparation lacked some care and made it harder to spin than it might have been. I find it really hard to wash very dirty, very greasy fleece effectively, always ending up with more sticky grease and filth than I can readily enjoy, or somewhat felted fleece that has been very much handled and rinsed a great deal! I’m wondering now what it is to become. Honour its softness and make hats? Make cushy slippers for a friend who has requested slippers that I have not yet been able to knit? Spoiled for choices, that’s me.
