I would class this wool more as a wool for spinners with some experience in spinning yarn. It is a shorter staple length and very fine. This suits a more seasoned spinner. Having said that, no one told me when I started spinning that Merino was not for beginners. I started out spinning very fine and ultra fine wool just like this. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t spin this. Take your time and you can spin almost anything!
I spun this very wool for over a year during the very first Journey To The Golden Fleece Course with Fibery Goodness’s Suzy Brown, Woolwench of Tiny Studios. I used this wool exclusively for the entire course. My final project, Antique Traditions, was included in the art gallery exhibit in PA. A photo of one of the yarns and the final project is included for your reference. This wool is a dream!
