So let me sing the praises of The Topeka Twister. I bought a couple of her lovely hand painted fiber braids at the Winter Woolfest two weeks ago. She also had some pretty rolags as well but I was honestly a bit hesitant to get those since I really hadn’t enjoyed spinning with them in the past. In the end, they were just too pretty to pass up. Pale blue and pale teal with white and cream colors and plenty of sparkly Angelina made them so irresistible.
And you know what? I’m so glad I bought them. There were eight rolags to the bag which was a little over 4 ounces. They are a complete dream to spin!
I spun each of them woolen. Well, as woolen as I can manage. It’s difficult for me to get a good picture of me attempting to spin woolen. Especially when the phone shadow gets in the way! But the experience of spinning these rolags is luscious.
I finished spinning up an entire bobbin last night.
Isn’t that lovely? So ethereal. I haven’t yet determined what the finished yarn will be. I’m trying to decide whether I will ply it back on itself or maybe make it into a mini supercoil. Both are really tempting. So I’ll let it sit for a bit until I decide.
In the meantime, Jessica posted more pretty rolags on the Topeka Twister Facebook page this week. I felt compelled to snatch them up and they arrived today!
They are so bright, cheerful and full or color. I’m going to love spinning these!
