This is my 5th ever yarn, spun on a drop spindle. It is for my Granny for Christmas, it took me quite a few hours, but I feel it is worth it!

It has little plastic pearls spun through it too, and bits of angelina fibre.


I painted her a label to go on it too. Smiley

That is so pretty.  I love the colors.  The label is the cutest I have ever seen.

This might seem out of the blue, but how did your wrap your yarn?
Ie, how do you make a lovely small ball like that?
I'm guessing you don't have a ball winder
