Tour de Fleece Day 7 & 8

I have spun about 1200 yds in the last two days.

Total spun for the Tour so far is approximately 1900 yds!!!

For Day 7, I finished spinning the gorgeous purple Merino/Angora/nylon blend into singles. Now they are resting and I will ply them tomorrow.
Also started spinning this beautiful roving from River’s Edge Fiber Arts “Shake Your Tail Feather!” Colorway: Buckskin. It is a blend of 65% Superwash Merino/15% Tencel/10% Banana/10% Milk
As you can see, my dog Ozzy, is calmly letting my husband shave him. Oh yeah, I do save all of his hair for spinning!
