This fiber does have a learning curve to it, I had the best luck spinning over the fold at first, but was able to spin in a worsted manner after some initial practice. It did not bloom as much as a wool, so for those that weave, so consider a sett on the higher threads per inch end if you choose to weave. I not only would buy again, this is a repeat purchase. Just a note I hope that PF will choose to let us include photos with our reviews, I would enjoy being able to provide them and it would make future purchases easier if I could see some examples of how various fibers and colorways spin up.
Beautiful product and prompt service, as always !
This is a beautiful spinning fiber with a bit of a learning curve as it is quite slippery. I had the most consistent result spinning over the fold and then made a wonderful 3-ply with tons of luster. Weavers should know this fiber did not bloom for me as much as a wool would, so plan to use the higher end of a sett for weaving.
