i bought a paper bagful of raw wool (about 2 lbs) from martha when i was in brigadoon at christmas and this is the result of my first try at prepping a handful. not great, but good for a first try! the theory works, anyway.
washed a handful last weekend, but still a bit sticky.
made two rolags, kinda….
spun the first single:
then the second single (definitely easier):
and it made a five yd. test skein:
i made them on liz, and one of her bobbins (the first one) is definitely bad: the bearing inside causes it to stick and pulls out completely. i wonder how i can fix it?
