The Spinning Study Group had its first meet up of 2011 this weekend. 10 members gathered together to learn about and spin Romney Wool. We started with seeing the unwashed fleece and comparing it to the washed fiber. We spun both worsted (from batts) and wollen (from rolags) samples. Some people plyed their yarn. We each created a reference sheet with samples of both the spun and un-spun fiber, with notes about its characteristics and project ideas.
Here are some web resources about Romney.
