I started spinning the 2oz of white jacob on my spindles right after MDSW. i've been trying to spin a little bit every day. i haven't succeeded fully on that, but i've been pretty close. i have no idea what i'm doing as far as winding a cop, so i wasn't able to fit half the fiber on the spindle. thankfully, spicy and i bought like 500 pairs of bamboo chopsticks for $1 a few years ago (i don't know what we were thinking) and they make nice placeholders for my spindle spun yarn.
i really like jacob. it has a little bit of sheen and it's very easy to spin. this fiber is about a medium softness, like finn or falkland. i think the other two colors in my sampler would make an awesome 4ply sock yarn. not that i will want to spin jacob again for awhile after this.
this is only half the fiber. i'm spinning the other half on my golding spindle. it is taking a very long time. i have to keep reminding myself that spinning very fine laceweight was the entire purpose for my wanting to get a spindle and that it is going to take a long time. but it's taking a really long time.
so give me a couple more weeks and i might be ready to ply. i'm definitely going to ply on the wheel.
