Hello to all. First of all a HUGE THANK YOU! to all of you. I have been spying on this forum for a while. I have read lots of advice and finally purchased a spindle with some roving. I am excited to say that I have spun what came with my spindle and am ready for more!!!
My question is this… I am looking on ebay at some beautiful rovings. They are colored nicely and seem to be pretty inexpensive. They are Corriedale and about an ounce each. If I get a bundle of colors (like 7) what would be the best way to spin it. Do I spin a little of each color all together (or would that end up looking like puke?) Or do you spin each one separately and then work them up together in the project (I don’t have any idea what the project would be at this point.) And possibly most importantly, how do I (a complete newbie at this) know that the wool is good for spinning instead of felting? (Here is the lady I am looking at right now –link As long as I order “roving” should I be safe as far as how it is processed and ready to spin?
And if anyone has made it this far… here is my first attempt
