When we brought our sheep home last year, I did not have the slightest interest in spinning yarn. Long story short - new hobby. (and it's quite addictive) The white wool is from one of our adult Icelandics and the grey yarn is made from purchased lincoln longwool roving. Maybe someday they'll be lacey scarves. But not yet... still in the spin cycle.
I love the simplicity of spinning on the drop spindle (love the spinning wheel too!) I have been quite surprised at how quickly yarn can be spun on the drop spindle once you get it 'a whorlin!
