Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, and the very best New Year. May 2017 be a great year for everyone. I have taken out my spinning wheels and fine tuned them, oiled and waxed them. I have also bought 2 oz of many different sheep wool to try and find which I like better. I want to spin some natural colored wool for socks. I would also love to buy a new spinning wheel but they are so expensive. I have had 2 of them over twenty years and the other one probably about 12 years. I need lots of practice because it has been a long time since I have spun wool. I also purchased some silk and tencel to add to my wool to make the socks hold up with wear and not stretch out. Have great family time during the holidays.
