What great yarn!

I purchased this 8 oz Hand Dyed Coopworth Wool Roving from Good Shepherd Fibers Etsy shop last week.

8 oz Hand Dyed, Coopworth Wool Roving, Crazy Ball

I started spinning it yesterday.  I'm used to 'fatter' rovings so it took me a little while to get the feel of it but it spun up to be a beautiful yarn.

Here it is still on the bobbin.

I'm going to leave the yarn on the bobbin overnight to help set the twist.  Tomorrow I'll wind it into skeins, wash it and hang it up to dry.

Hope you had a good day.

Congratulations on your new blog. I love it that you have so many fibre interests :) I'll be following you. I might have to lock up my pocketbook though, as I'm sure you'll inspire me and others to try new things.
Blog on!

Oh my gosh - that is beautiful! I don't know much about spinning, but it certainly looks interesting.
