|One bit of neps from a half hour of spinning|
I've been tardy with spinning some Angora (bunny) exercises for homework. I kept putting off finishing the exercises because I wasn't enjoying the experience. It's not that it's a horrible fibre. It's actually a lovely fibre and spins to make gorgeous yarn, all soft, fluffy and warm. However, I seem to have managed to get the mother of all inclusion of neps, short cuts or breakage in the fibre. I have sorted the fibre before carding it, picked through the batts and rolags after carding and then picked out more short cuts as I was spinning. It wasn't fun spinning most of the time because it was start and stop. Still, I was missing lots of neps and was picking some of them out of the finished yarn.

So what did I do when I was done wet finishing the final skein? I made hand dipped candles of course!
