This morning, I sat down to spun my prized fleece...some fleece artist roving that I bought on eBay 3-4 months ago. I was waiting til I was a halfway decent spinner to spin it. And guess what?
As I sat down to spin, I noticed that there was a huge matted glob in the roving. So I pre-drafted and pre-drafted and tugged and pulled but all told, about 1/5 of the roving was unworkable. I was so dissapointed! Someone at KR said that it could felt on its own, just by existing. My guess is that it came felted and I didn't check it closely when it arrived. Ah well. Live and learn. Anyway, the good news is that I matched up the colors on the plies pretty well ( a first for me) and my two bobbins were almost the exact same size (another first for me). The bad news is the yarn is pretty itchy and scratchy and not the Fleece Artist I know and love.
