Spinning

In case you were wondering this is why I learnt to spin.

Pure Wool Hand spun and plied

Pure wool laps (from the Bendigo Woolen Mills) spun to about an 8 ply gauge all ready to knit an ear flap hat for Ashley for Christmas.

The wool was all from the same bag – I just separated the colours and started spinning.

There is approximately 240 metres of the softest wool.  More than enough for a hat to keep Ashley warm.

  1. I get it. I took a walk through L1ncraft yesterday and was eyeing off yarns, the majority have acrylic in them and are made in China. *shudder*

    Love Bendigo Woollen Mills AND your yarn! Being 100% soft, soft wool and made right in your own house – you can’t beat that 😉
