An Adventure in Spinning, The Recap

breed specificIt was a little over a month ago that I said I have these seven breed specific fibers from Louet’s Canterbury Prize Wool Group, let me share thee adventure of spinning them with you. I can honestly say that I’ve learned a ton and I’ve had a total blast sharing each experience here. I now know the subtle differences between sliver & top, as well as the more dramatic differences between the different breeds with which I spun. Speaking of these different fibers, how about we take a tour of the yarns I made with them?

In order of how they appear in the above photo (not the order in which I spun them), they are…

I am not only a more well-versed spinner for this little experiment, I am just overall a better spinner for it. If you have the chance, I highly recommend putting together your own similar adventure. Louet has 15 different breeds specific fibers to try out — what are you waiting for?
