Wensleydale

I know, two posts in one week. Don't have a heart attack or anything. I've been spinning some of the Wensleydale I couldn't get a picture of earlier on the new Golding (see last post). This is a pretty decent representation of the purples, except you can't really tell that it's a bit variegated:

I'm spinning a little thicker than usual and hoping to get a three-ply fingering, possibly sport.

You're such a great spindler. I think you're doing a fantabulous job with that fiber. I also think, if that's the fiber I saw in person, that the purple is much prettier in person. It's too bad those colors are so hard to photograph.

I can't believe how fine you can spin on a drop spindle. It almost makes me want to give it a go, except I don't need something else to do. So, I'll just admire yours from afar!

Of course, I love the color. :)

Amazing. I've only seen spindling done once and I was totally lost as to how it all worked.

So what's it like to spindle with a really long-stapled wool like this one? And drafting issues, etc?
