~Purchased 3 oz, unknown wool fiber from one of the gals in my spinning class. The fiber was in a bag, it felt really fabulous, and the colors perfect for spinning and knitting a hat for my granddaughter. Yeah! I pulled hanks off of the wool roving, attenuated it and spun. She was right it spun beautifully; a soft, shiny, fiber. Then…….. I found 1 oz of odd roving which had been “hidden” inside of the beautiful “stuff” and dyed along with it since the dye matches. If feels as if it is coarse, I-hate-to-spin, Dorset or wool of that ilk. I spun it on a separate bobbin. Now I’m not sure I’ll have enough to make Maddie’s hat. I’ll see how much of the “pretty stuff” I have when the yarn is plied. Maybe there’s enough of the ick to make a doll hat? Lesson learned, always pull the fiber out of the bag to make sure it is all good. Any of you have a similar problem?
