Hi! I haven't spun in a good while, but here is what I currently am working on.

Spindle- Ashford top whirl spindle(i think)

Fiber- I took some Nepal yean that was unspun plies with a thread and I took the thread out and am spinning the fiber, the color varigate from deep purples to blues to browns and some nice rich reds. I thought it was cheating at first and then I realized it was kinda like pencil roving in a way. I also like how you don't need to predraft unless you want it thinner and it stays consistant and is about a worsted-weight size Cheesy

Here it is, tell me what you think.


Thanks for looking.
