|My Tour de Fleece project|
I'm captain of the Spin Your Stash team, and we all dove into our stash find our challenges for this years tour. As captain, I felt I should attempt to spin up some truly vintage stash. The bumbs shown above are from a fleece I purchased 20 years ago! The bobbin is about 22 years old as in the wheel it is being spun on. Yes, this stash has aged.
This is really a fun and worthwhile event that allow hand spinners from all over join up in a virtual spin in. It is fun to see everyone's beautiful fiber. Many people are working with gorgeous hand painted rovings, but I am joined by many hardy stalwarts who manage to spin bobbin after bobbin of naturally colored fleece. So I am not alone in working with piles of gray.
From now through July 21, there will be lots of spinning going on at my house!
