And How Do You Spin?

Love Fibers??!! You bet!! Just the touch and feel of any type of fiber (well, it should be nice to feel fiber). There is a handshake in weavers' language--it's the touch of fiber! That language also crosses into quilting, spinning, dyeing or any fiber related craft.
There hasn't been much spinning this summer, but now that fall is here--it's time to get back to the spinning wheel and enjoy the touch of fiber.  This is llama/silk blend.........

I just love the touch and feel of this fiber, I had to post a photo twice--two times the pleasure!  Just a nice fiber to spin!

It is hard to see here, but this fiber has a touch of silver amongst it's merino wool--blended just perfect for our spin-in 25th anniversary party in January!  Our theme is 'circles' and this will make a wonderful cowl to wear on those cold days.

This wensleydale fiber roving is all so pleasing to the eye, but the touch is not the softest.

Spinning was a pleasure though--outer wear definitely.  Okay, back to the spinning and thinking about what to make from these lovely fibers.......................
