I have been spinning for over 20 years. I spin on a wheel (Lendrum), and on drop spindles. As a newbie spinner, I went to Maryland Sheep and Wool Show, and discovered this fiber. The seller at the show recommended this fiber to me for learning how to use hand cards, hand combs, and different spinning techniques. That way I would not waste "good fiber". That seller was spot on, this is a great beginner fiber - so easy to card or comb - then easy to spin. What can you make from the spun fiber? Makes pretty good socks, and I like the hat (simple knit beanie) I made. I also do Inkle Weaving, and it makes great weaving material. It is great for people with wool allergies! Is it like wool? Nope! But neither is silk, linen, bamboo, cotton, etc. I also teach spinning. This is very student friendly! Best of all, it is made from recycled materials - meaning we are keeping plastic out of our landfills and oceans! A Win-Win deal! I hope that I can always find Eco Spun here!
