Sunday Spinning, June 14th.

A fibre sampling day.  Bryn kindly organised little bags containing 10gm. each of a variety of fibres:  Blue-faced Leicester, Manx Loaghtan, Herdwick, Lincoln Longwool, Cheviot and Corriedale. The challenge was to spin and ply each of these, and comment on its' properties.  The Lincoln Longwool was popularly thought to resemble a horse's tail.


Some of the samples were woven into triangles on Kate's pin loom, and will make a nice start for our contribution to the guild challenge at the All Wales Meeting in October.
