Rewind---spinning, not refined

After spending the last several years focusing on lace weight and plied yarn I wanted to make something lumpy and bulky.  I took some Shetland fleece that I washed with the Dirty Rotten Bastard wool shampoo and gently opened up the locks with hand carders. Then I spun a slubby single with my own version of a long draw.  It was so fun and quick! After soaking and drying under just a little tension, I started making a stocking cap.
