Hand spun wool

I had a  jam jar lid waiting for a project so this morning I made a drop spindle with the lid a small hook and a pencil. Then I had a little go at spinning some of Berties fleece sooooooooooooooooo

This afternoon I went out into my workshop and turned a drop spindle on my lathe. Tis about 18 months since I used the lathe last.

The cream wool is pure bertie and the red is some roving I bought to make felt with.

It is a bit shaggy and there are thick and thin bits but hey ho I will master it and can only get better
