I have just started playing with it. Not sure I like spinning with pencil roving - it tends to make a nubby/slubby... which may be ok. I think it has potential for felting projects as well, however, so will be continuing to experiment! p.s. I love the store layout and large selection. However, there was no help in the aisles (admittedly I did not actively request any until I got into the fiber and spinning area, but after saying hi to me the front desk left me to my own devices), and the lighting was inadequate, even kinda dark in some areas. Hard to see if I had a gray or a green Jamison Shetland in my hands, so I left them all on the shelf. Thanks again
I love knitting with this type of 'yarn' but the lack of patterns have made using it almost impossible and very frustrating. I love doing big projects, fell I love with the colors and impulsively bought several rolls. But much to my dismay, finding knitting patterns using pencil roving is difficult. I may end up spinning it into yarn, but I really don't want to do that. I gave it only two stars, because of the lack of patterns, not because the product was faulty. If there were more (Or should I say ANY) I would have it on my needles today.
good! it took a little getting used to because it's not twisted, but the scarf I made came out nice...I lightly felted it after knitting
Ahhhh, the answer to success for a beginning spinner and you can't go wrong getting anything Noro!
