I've been lurking for quite some time but now that I have made myself a CD drop spindle, I have questions that I'm sure are easy to answer for experienced spinners.
- So I bought some Lincoln roving (that's what I found locally), and I find that when I spin it, as soon as I release tension on the newly spinned yarn (for example to skein it, it wants to twist on itself like crazy. Is this normal or did I put too much twist in my yarn?
- Also, how do you keep the ends of the fiber to stick out of the yarn? When my dh saw my first try at spinning, he asked if I needed a razor...
It's quite hairy. The problem is, I'm not sure how Lincoln roving is supposed to look once spinned, so I don't know how much is user error and how much is normal.
Thanks for bearing with me!
