P1000675 hanson closer

The electric Hanson Spinner is wonderfully small and portable.  It is a dream to spin on and will go as fast or as slow as I wish.

P1000967 black angora

The black wool here is from one of the Angora rabbits.    It’s a bit tricky to spin as it doesn’t have the little hooks on it that wool fiber has.   So it needs to be spun thin and with lots of twist so that it will hold together.   After spinning, it will need to be plied with another spun fiber.   I’m thinking I’ll use either alpaca or wool as pure Angora is too warm for our area.

I was going to show you dog fur being spun, but it is hiding from me at the moment.
