Tour de Fleece

Posted by

It’s that time of year again! This Saturday, the Tour de France begins and as it goes, so does the Tour de Fleece. I will be spinning a breed study of sorts – all four ounces or less of four different breeds:

Tunis – cream – will be my spindle spinning.
Portland – cream
BlueFaced Leicester – mutli
Merino/Tussah silk – red/yellow

I also have two bobbins already spun of a wool blend and am in the process of blending some nylon into the remaining bump of this wool to make strong heel/toe yarn.

I could push myself like I tried to last year, but this is enough to keep me busy and feeling productive. It’s one thing I’ve learned about myself – I do like feeling productive in my hobbies.

I’ll post more and once I figure out what’s happening here, there will be pictures.
Spin on!
