Alex received some hand carders, a spinning book and a drop spindle from Santa this year. We took advantage of having Auntie Carrie over to get a quick lesson in spinning our bunny wool.
It is easier than we thought it would be to spin-- but it will take lots of practice. Also, we need a fiber that we can blend with the angora, as it does not have much give.
I ordered some raw sheep wool online. I knew it would have to be washed. I did not know it would be caked in dirt. Yuck. I'm not sure that I want to take this part of the project on quite yet. We'll get some nice clean merino roving to start off with!
