OMG I love that cat! Both of them! How cute. So funny too. The fiber is great, I love those colors. Perfect for fall scarves or hats. I have some wool from Nesse from STS. It's Romney, isn't it Nesse? I can't remember. Anyway, it's very thick. It seems like it would be super warm.

I think you got both domestic and romney from me. so if it had a bit of a crimp to it before you spun it, then yes, romney!

Yes it must be then. I'm thinking about the later two colors I got from you. I think the first few were similar to SSS roving. I've spun the green and haven't gotten to the orange/pink yet. So pretty though. I have a ball of the green I keep on my desk because it looks good.  Cheesy

Was it this? http://www.flickr.com/photos/ieatwaffles/3450226299/in/set-72157614121214849/ that's romney. ack, I've sent so much roving through STS that I can't remember who I sent what :/

I am a serious batt hoarder! sometimes I think they're just too pretty and I'm afraid to touch them and make them not-as-pretty haha.

I received friday and holy cow I got spoiled! I absolutly LOVE everything, I CANNOT wait to start spinning!! I am sending my partner's package out today! On to the pics:

an awesome octopus box and spindle that I need to figure out

a close up of the sparkly red batt

I can't wait to dig into this!

quarter of an ounce of angora! It is so super soft I hope I don't screw this up!

some super bright locks

and an alpaca/bamboo batt that is so soft and pretty

I jumped up and down and made my roomates touch it, they are boys so they dont get it, but I am so incredibly happy with all my goodies I can't wait to get started, and I'm gonna be busy for awhile!!
Thanks Ysmeine!!! You're the greatest!

that octopus box is absolutely fabulous.  That fiber looks gorgeous.  And is that a bottom whorl spindle?  It's really cute.  wonderful package!

It is a bottomwhorl spindle, that is all I use. I had a hard time deciding what to send. But, I had to touch the angora as well. It has a 3" staple so it would probably work best blended with somethin else.

I've never used a bottom whorl spindle.  that's likely because I jumped into buying a spinning wheel after I spun up 1 oz on top whorl spindle... LOL
