Spinning Here and There

Miscellaneous spinning pictures for this week. Dyed merino top in "Land and Sky" colourway and some lovely coloured corriedale fleece at the bottom. I haven't spun raw fleece for a couple of months, and it is nice to get back to the basics with it. This fleece is so soft, and quite free of chaff, which is amazing considering the handfeeding going on with this persistent drought.

I love the process of turning a raw material into a functional item - self-sufficiency. With the TV series ode to self-sufficiency "The Good Life" re-re-re-reruns on TV again, it gives me something to spin while watching it!
