After hemming and hawing for over 2 years, I finally took the plunge and investing in some Merino fleece from Copper Moose. I was concerned at first because the fleece is very processed, so it spun very "fast". But once I got used to it, it went alright. I'm using Ruby, Purple Orchid and African Violet randomly, for different lengths so the finished yarn will be variegated. I've finished one bobbin and am working on number 2.
I can't wait to ply.
(If you haven't noticed by now, I take really horrible pictures, sorry!)
