i finished spinning the Ellie yarn.
FatCatKnits Variegated BFL in Sweet Tortie
spun longdraw from the fold, chain-plied
soaked and thwacked to finish
every time i spin BFL, i'm reminded of how it's not my favorite fiber. it has luster, which is nice, and it's reasonably soft, but it lacks bounce and feels sort of stringy and lifeless when compared with corriedale, targhee, polwarth, cvm, finn, or merino. or even falkland. i think the next time i spin BFL, i'll card it and see if i like it better in a woolen prep.
one of these days this yarn will be stripey socks for Spicy.
