What's on my drop spindle

Here's what's in the process of being spun on my Golding drop spindle. This is 2/3 shetland wool and 1/3 merino from Sporfarm in The Dalles, OR. It's a dream to spin! And no, I did not buy this fiber at BSG (Black Sheep Gathering) - it was in the stash from a purchase 2 years ago at OFFF (Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival).


  1. That is some beautiful I'm partial to grey...and who doesn't love Shetland!!! Are you going to do sox with it???? awesome!

  2. I'm not sure what this roving will grow up to be yet - it's kind of a teal/grey mix......I also have another bag of a lighter shade of this same roving that I'll spin next.

  3. Ohhh, I bought some beautiful Shetland blends from them last year at BSG. Such a joy to spin. Nice to see it on a spindle, and a Golding none the less!


I love your comments - thank you!
