Between me and Stella, we have about 18 years experience of spinning. We have spun everything from the BANANA FIBRE to wool Possum to cotton. We thought it would be great to have a challenge. This is where you can help we will both spin the same wool Blue faced Leicester cross HOG which means its a lamb, the first shearing. SOFT BEAUTIFUL and SUPER to knit with. We are going to dye it the same colour, then spin it up. This will be posted each week over 4 weeks or so. You can follow our progress from start to finish. Now the exciting part. Me and Stella live miles from each other so only speak on the phone. So we thought it would be great to see what we come up with, will it be the same or different? EVERY PERSON WHO COMMENTS will be entered to win the YARN SPUN. SO 2 people will receive 100g of the yarn. The more you comment eg each week the more chances to win.
YOUR FIRST CHANCE TO BE ENTERED. What colours should we use? PICK 2 or 3 COLOURS which you think we should use. Its your choice.
