I haven’t vanished!

I’ve spun a sample of Black Welsh Mountain, but I really wanted to have a sample from a second supplier’s wool that was in my stash before I share it. I’ve also got some Cotswold on the spindles, and a very fun project with hand-combed CVM! For now I just can’t scrape up the time to post (sick kids, house responsibilities, preschool responsibilities, oh my!) but I hope to do so very soon – stay tuned.

  1. Hi,
    I was just wondering how you’d prepped your Black Welsh Mountain…
    I’m curious because I’m making a little experiment with the fleece I have, spinning some in the grease and trying different prepping methods.
    I’ve not actually started on the washing yet, but will do it in batches to try different ways of washing it as well.
    Looking forward to seeing how yours turned out…

    • Hi Cecile, my Black Welsh was actually already prepped when I got it — sort of. :) I ended up spinning the first batch semi-worsted (short draw from drum carded roving) and I think I’d planned to spin the second batch more woolen-ish (American long draw from hand carded rolags). I have seen that there’s actually a flock of Black Welsh Mountain here on the island so I will probably be revisiting the breed, and starting from raw fleece, before too long!

    I’ve been back reading your blog, it’s so interesting! I recently saw some Black Welsh Mountain sheep, boy are they beautiful. I’d like to get my hands on some fiber to try one day. I hope you get some time to post in the future and I wanted to say thanks for all your enlightening posts on ravelry as well :D
