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