The Pleasure of Combed Wool

Ahhh...spinning from hand combed Shetland is wonderful. This was the most delightful spinning ever! It took a long time to hand comb the wool but it spun so even and fast. The photo doesn't do the color justice. This is from the 5 lbs of Shetland I purchased a while back.
I pulled all the purple batts into roving balls. I have no interest in spinning this stuff now that I have discovered the joy of spinning hand combed fiber. This will just have to sit in a basket looking pretty for now.
