This is my first club fiber from “Southern Cross Fibre Club” (aug 2014). Color is saturated and lovely to spin. It is such a treat for me!
Though it is Falkland wool, I am planning 3-ply sock-yarn.
I am planning to spin for tapestry. Using 4×3 oz fiber, I should be able to make decent size.
I have been listening many people say we should know our fiber better in order to use properly.
Well, hearing is not knowing.
I should be able to track my spinning-way better than previously. Since I started to “Journey to the Golden Fleece”. I want to make this blog to be my journal to this journey.
I used non-dyied shetland and Cotswold sheep, and purchased green fiber (merino, nylon).
Since cotswold had great curly crimp, I should try another type of yarn.
I decided to comb my two-year old fleece from Hokkaido. This fiber was washed and included many vegetable matters.
Shetland is double layer, and it was hard carding.
Here is my washed fiber.
Set fleece into comb.
This is before soaking.
Because thick part is underplyed, I am thinking to sock this yarn. I will try this method first time, and looking forward to see how these will turn out.
