And more....

This is called *Copperwood* and it is a merino that came from WC Mercantile. I got a migraine when I spun this as there were a lot of dry fibers flying off as I drafted it. I thought for sure that the finished yarn would be a bit rough but it turned out SO soft! It is really lovely!

I also had a problem when I was spinning some alpaca so I seem to be sensitive to flying fibers. I have since found out that I can spray leave-in hair conditioner directly on the fibers before I draft them and that will help *tame* them. I hope it works as I am NOT going to stop spinning them and don't want to be limited in my choices!
