i’ve been having an interesting time spinning the same fiber as both roving/top and farm wool/commercial wool and was wondering what others’ experiences are. please email your answers to cosymakes (!at) gmail (dot!) com or respond in the comments section on this blog entry. need incentive? read all the way through this post.
what have you spun in what preparation? if you’ve spun both top and roving, which did you like better? were either of these farm wool? was there a notable difference between the farm wool and the non farm wool? elaborate or not as much as you would like!
the list of wools (add any i’ve missed that you’ve spun, especially if both farm and commercial or both roving and top):
south african fine
thanks for answering! when all is said and done, i’ll use the random number generator to send a lovely 4 oz. bundle of hand dyed roving at one participant and if more of you answer than expected, i’ll do two! so tell your fibery friends ;) and just as a side note, i may have to order the wool and dye it first, so the shipping of said roving may not be so prompt. heh heh.
p.s. you may ask what i’ve been up to lately? labeling for the pittsburgh knit and crochet fest this weekend. i tell you, i’m boring. at least you all give me something to think about!
