Ciska : Staple length approx. 12 cmGenerally speaking I try to spin to gage so that all my yarns can be mixed and matched. I prefer spinning a fine yarn which knits up at 8 stitches per inch on 2mm needles. Looking at the quality of Ciska’s fleece, I decided to try spinning in the grease. Just perfect! All I had to do was gently pull apart the fleece and spin! What could be easier! The color is just beautiful. The sun-bleached tips add a subtle brown “tweed” effect. Just lovely!
Ciska : Raw fleece and spun yarn
It will take me some time to finish spinning her fleece ... but in the meantime I will be making plans for all those skeins of beautiful brown yarn.
