between everything else, and for the first time, it is a multicolor dyed wool top. This one is made by Louet, and is called Northern Lights, and I'm finding it very easy to spin, even though I'm a beginner, having started spinning this past spring. I loosened / untangled the wool tops into a plastic bag, and am continuously spinning out of the bag. When I stop, I can wind the end of the spun yarn around the knob on my orifice hook, to hold it in place, and then come back and pick up where I left off.
While my first thought was that it was going to be too bold and splotchy - it's coming out downright gorgeous! I love the color, and am hoping it will be enough to make a hat, scarf, or maybe even small shawl??? The package said I have 1/ 2 pound of wool top, and I'm spinning as fine as I dare to (maybe it will be a fine fingering weight?), but I'll just have to be patient and wait and see.
