I *Heart* My Mini Combs
I may have a problem.
I can't stop combing fleece.
It started with the Corriedale:
Then, I moved on to some Targhee I acquired from my guild's fiber swap the other night:
And then, there was Cormo.
There was adult Cormo:
And Cormo lamb (hogget):
Which is turning into hand-combed adult Cormo:
and hand-combed Cormo lamb (which you simply must feel to believe):
Of course, all this combing produces waste, which can then be carded. Here's some of that Cormo lamb combing waste, which I spun long-draw:
That was a quick-and-dirty, noils and all sample, spun around midnight without caring about consistent grist (that's probably obvious). But it proves to me that the combing waste is still very usable.
I also finished spinning some roving from Pigeonroof Studios:
That's 3.75 oz., 182 yards of superwash merino.
