look at you go Jexx!  I've got bags and bags full of wool that I need to wash and no time to wash them for at least 3 weeks.  I'll be pushing it, that's for sure.

Hey, can we have more than one entry? I like this yarn well enough but I might also want to enter something a little more... refined?

I ordered some BFL to spin.
I dyed it tonight using some acid dyes and the microwave.  Right now it is cooling.  I'm excited just getting started...

What is BFL? I am not sure what type of wool to use as a beginner spinner. I have my eye on some superwash merino...unless I hear that it's heck to spin. I'm going to check the fiber boards for info on wool types once I wash this face mask off. It's a little tough reading long posts without my glasses  Cheesy
