I'm finally spinning the rest of the fiber that became a felted dog toy. It's...challenging. I couldn't find the right settings for my wheel, so I pulled out a drop spindle for the first time in months.
Now when the fiber is clumpy or suddenly breaks it's no big deal. (Although I hate having this not-cheap spindle hit the floor.)
This stuff has little blobs of short fiber in it (neps). You can either obsessively pick them out, or make lumpy yarn.
It's neps all the way down. Let's just call it rustic texture and admire the colors.
