Spinning Along

Handspun

This yarn was spun from one of my textured art batts.  The batt was full of alpaca, merino, mulberry silk, silk noil, Firestar, and Wensleydale locks.  It is really next to skin soft.

This was spun on my Matchless with the bulky flyer.  I am still working on the bulky flyer.  I ended up getting rid of the cotton drive band that came with the flyer.  It just wasn’t “grippy” enough and as the bobbin filled, it seems to slip.  I have a cone of 2 ply linen cotton.  The linen is one single and the cotton is another.  It is a unique yarn…  I am hoping this will solve the drive band issue…
