I thought that the nasty mess the locks left below the drum carder would be worth it and charged on to create the lovely, cloudy batts. In the back of my mind I couldn’t quite stifle the feeling that this fiber wasn’t spinning up like any Border Leicester that I’ve worked with in the past. In fact, it spun up very much like Romney, of which I am not a big fan – too coarse, and hairy. In fact, I don’t like to work with Romney at all. This yarn really needs to be woven as it has no memory. I don’t like the color and I don’t like the feel of the yarn. Whatta drag. I can’t wait for the next dye day so I can try green and purple on something else!
