I have been spinning wool which came with the wheel plus a few bits and pieces that kind people have given me but I am getting a little fed up with all that hand carding. It takes ages and the finished rolags are not that great - full of lumps and bumps! I finally succumbed and bought myself some wool tops from Etsy. Tops are already carded, combed actually, and just heaven to spin. Really, no more bits to take out. And of course it was spinning in colour! What fun! Here's my progress from on the bobbin to a 3 ply. Now I can't decide whether to knit it or sell it!

And finally, the finished wool!
