Finished spinning creatively dyed fiber. Very easy spin. Spun from the tip.

Drill Sergeant:Sarge is gone for a bit
long draw- short fibers, spun from the cloud. Very dense fiber, super soft- Easy to spin once it gets going
Short fiber supported long draw. Love/hate I gained love as it spun. Can be breaky in spinning.
Long forward draw- long staple. Worsted preferred by the fiber. Course fiber. A bit sticky
Short forward draw. Short staple. Modified worsted spun. Spun finer than I thought it would. Still had ram smell. Still had lanolin
Started the Shawl
