Spinning Cheapskate Romney Yarn
After combing out the Romney fibre and giving it as a gift, I was left with enough waste combings to fill a paper grocery sack.
I am teasing out the fibres. I'm pulling out the obvious noils, hopelessly dirty tips, and second cuts. And (you knew this was coming) I'm spinning the Romney up. Here you can see the first single in progress. Fuzzy, isn't it?
I plan to do three-ply for a change, because a single made from short and random fibres is not the strongest.
