Ways with CropShare wool
So you know about the sheep at the farm…

Vicky lent me her spinning wheel and I’ve been doing a bit of spinning since then! Thanks so much Vicky!
I’m a complete beginner, so got a lot of spinning wheel rage at first but managed to make something half decent.
The wool spun out quite thin, so I twisted two bobbins worth together to make a thicker plyed yarn I could knit with.

Here’s the first bit of wool I made on a contraption called a niddy noddy. No idea why its called that!
