Aussie Fur

Yes, you read that right. A very good friend (and fellow spinner!) sent me some fur from her dog for my birthday present. AussieFurclose

That stuff is so soft! It’s unwashed at the moment, which is driving my dog nuts. I can hardly wait to get started with it. I think I’ll spin it first, then wash it. That will help keep the fibers from felting or getting tangled. Which is pretty much the same thing, now that I think about it. (Unless you want to get into the molecular structure of felted fibers.)

I’m going to spin it on the Great Wheel as soon as I finish up the fall colored fleece. Talk about motivation! Let’s get that fleece done! She also sent some rescued cotton bits from pill bottles. I’m very curious to see how they will behave on the wheel.

I think the Aussie fur will turn into a pretty bag or pouch, but I have no idea what I’ll do with the cotton. It’ll be a spur-of-the-moment yarn. That’s the exciting kind.

Now, if I can just hurry up and get the fall fleece done. I’m almost through with the singles. Almost. AlmostDoneFall
