Let the Spinning Begin!

Worsted, woolen, roving, and carding, oh my!

Today was so much fun! This was my second time practicing and learning on the #spinning wheel. It is so interesting learning about different fiber and textures and what they are used best for. I also learned the difference between #worsted and #woolen yarn. Woolen yarn is the more open yarn which is better for #knitting things such as a warm beanie of scarf where worsted is better for something as a sweater. At least I think that's right..lol! I'm still learning.

I also ordered my Ladybug spinning wheel and should have it in a 3-4 weeks. I'm also getting my sheep's fiber ready for processing, can hardly wait to spin my first yarn from our first shearings. Let the spinning begin! Stay tuned!
