I finished spinning my Sara’s Texture Crafts polwarth singles today, and I think they’re looking good so I’m looking forward to plying them in the week.


And this evening I started spinning some of my John Arbon fibre – I’ll need to crack on with that if I’m going to get it finished by next weekend, and my mill trip! I’m aiming for a slightly thicker yarn with that fibre though, but it’s drafting beautifully at the moment, it’s quite hard not to spin it very finely!
