My spinning skills have taken a dramatic leap in improvment. This is merino superwash singles.
Then I bought a new spindle and can do even more. This is merino superwash-alpaca.
This is still not local wool. That will come. I did buy some Columbia top that is from a local farm and some Shetland fleece that is not but I will be processing it.
This is the spindle; a Spindlewood 1.25oz (37g). I'm also waiting for a Bosworth 15g for very fine yarn or silk and a Bosworth 50+ gram for plying.
Today my brother-in-law brought over his brush cutter and I mowed the location for our garden beds. Next will be tilling.
