Hmmm, so today I fell off the no new projects wagon- I managed to get the uni work that was scheduled done, so allowed myself a bit of a look at the projects I need to get on with. I managed to fall out with all my craft projects that need to be done so in a fit of frustration broke out the fibre I bought it at a craft fair, found by accident on a birthday trip to Woburn Safari Park. It is a 100% merino hand dyed in shades of orange (can't remember the dyer, will try to find the leaflet).
I have been considering the purchase of a spinning wheel, and had intended to keep this for when I have saved up enough and made a decision, but have decided to spindle it instead (I was reeeeeally in the mood for some spinning).
As always I am spinning it thin, not sure why I do this, I think it is to do with getting the most length and spinning time out of the fibre. This is the thinnest so far, it should be a heavy laceweight when spun up into a 2ply.
With a scale penny, I did say it was thin!
