So yesterday evening our spinning group organized a workshop on how to spin balanced singles… I have not been spinning for very long, but my yarn is getting nicer and more even, so I decided to join it, and learn new technique.
We all received a bag with 2 unwashed batts. I never spun greasy wool before, and I found the feel of it bit weird… Also I don not like the smell of lanoline very much, but I had to suck it up 😀
The guy hosting the workshop has been spinning for very long time, and brought some interesting samples. After a small introduction and instructions, I started to spin. I wanted to try to make a thicker yarn, but my wheel is not design to spin thick or art yarn. So I kept trying to spin thinner and thinner. But still I kept putting too much twist into the yarn…
I guess it is needless to say, there is a long way ahead of me, before I manage to spin proper well balanced single… 😀
