  1. They look great! And the ones that look less so will still spin nicely I am sure. It does take a bit of getting used to!

    • Yes, I’m sure they will spin fine, they are just not as tightly rolled and I think they will fall apart more easily. So they may not travel was well as I’d like. But I’ll manage somehow — I always do!

  2. The colors are so pretty. I’m clueless as to the process, but the rolag (I assume that’s what you call the tube of yarn? – see, told ya I’m clueless) appears to be very smooth. It will be fun to watch this turn into yarn. I’m officially intrigued.

    • You’re right! Rolags are just a different way to prep fiber — and yes! They are basically fiber tubes. A lot of people use them for easier long draw, but I just like to spin from them with spindles because I find that they travel easily.

  3. I need to get some carding done for the TdF as well – I’ll be doing some traveling and won’t always be able to bring my wheel. That looks like a beautiful rolag, I can’t wait to see your yarn!

      • Yes I am! I have a couple support spindles and some drop spindles. I have a tiny Turkish spindle that’s perfect for spinning in the car.

      • I have not yet tried to spin in the car. I get motion sick very easily and I’m kind of worried that the multiple motions of driving plus spinning won’t work well for me. :/
