[spinning] Polwarth

Not a terribly exciting post today, but this was my first time spinning Polwarth fiber:

Handspun Polworth

8 oz, two ply. This picture is two skeins twisted up together. This fiber was nice- easy to spin. Not as soft and bouncy as merino, but I like it more than corriedale. This is a helpful chart for sheep breeds and their softness. The lower the micron count, the softer the fiber.
