Tour De Fleece-Progress Report

I have been having fun with the Tour De Fleece- I  have managed to spin a little every day and make a few skeins of Romney Yarn. This is my first "real" usable yarn. Most of the other yarn I have made is being used for Wool Dryer Balls!  I am thinking socks? sweater? I might as well think BIG!

I have taken a break from the Romney and started working with some Tunis wool. I have spent more time making adjustments to the wheel for the shorter, finer wool, than I have spinning.  I am trying to ignore the few "slubs" that are in there, I keep telling myself, it just makes it that much more original (ha ha)
I am determined not to give up, until I have a few skeins of Tunis yarn.

The Tour De Fleece is always a great challenge, especially when you need the practice.
Thank you for letting me share my "small success" with you!
Spin On!

  1. Sandra, I have to say, your yarn is beautiful, and I'm very glad you are sharing it with us. When we had sheep and I gave spinning a try, I never got this far. My yarn was full of fat bumps and skinny threads. But I really enjoy seeing what you are up to. Maybe someone else out there will take up the spindle and give it a whirl. Thank you!


    1. Thanks!
      I almost gave up on the spinning thing, more than once :)

  2. You are doing a great job! Your yarn is perfectly wonderful :-).

  3. Oh my gosh you are doing great! I want a thick pair of slippers knitted with that yarn!

    1. I am working on some slippers, knit and felt ones. Using up that first yarn that I made when learning how to ply.
      Figured the felting will hide some of the mistakes :)


Thank you for stopping by the farm!

We appreciate your comments!
