A few weeks ago, I received the most wonderful gift. I starting a thread on Ravelry asking spinners about their favorite fiber to work with. Since I am purchasing most of my spinning fiber online, I wanted to get recommendations of reputable sources and not get stuck using the same fiber type over and over. I met an amazing local spinner who put a bag of different fibers together so I could practice.
I am completely blown away by this gift. Not online is there unknown wool (the ? bag), but there is Merino, Rayon, Cotton, Alpaca, Dog (breed unknown but I'm guessing Samoyed), Llama and Montadale. The spinner selected natural colors because she saw that I like to dye yarn. I will never be able to thank her enough for her generosity!
I am so excited to expand my spinning skills. I hope that I will be in a position someday where I can help other new spinners get started!
