Spinning Tunis Wool



Mike processed some roving with some of the Tunis Wool we had from our last shearing. It is very different than spinning the Romney Wool. It is a finer, shorter wool and I am having a hard time making the adjustments needed.

 I do find, I am very good at making slubs. What is a slub? Well in the fiber world, a slub is large, uneven textures in yarn, and if you don't already know, that is not something
brag about!

Oh well, practice, practice, practice!

  2. Woohoo ~ I'm a slubber too:) I didn't know that is what it was called. Thank you. The wonderful gal that has been teaching me says, "It's artistic yarn." Isn't she sweet?

  5. Would slubby yarn make good scarves? It sounds like it would make a fun texture.

  7. LOL You are funny. I do happen to like the look of slubs in some things. It adds a Bohemian, natural, earthy look that I like.
