Saturday spinning update: Nate

A message from a friend prompted me to go looking in my stash for bags from her very own sheep. I’ve got 3 different kinds, but I decided to start with wool from Nate, a Jacob sheep.

It took me a while to figure out how I wanted to spin this stuff. There is quite a lot of vegetable matter, so that dictated my decision. By spinning fairly skinny singles most of the unwanted stuff drops out without me picking it out, so faster production is winning.

I have no idea how the different colours from Nate will all work out in the end, but it’s fun to spin wool from a friend’s sheep. It was even better spinning it at another friend’s house outside on the deck. Here’s the pond before it’s all properly cleaned out and the less hardy plants put back in:

Can you see all those frogs? Some of them were talking to us a bit.
