Back to the Spinning Wheel

This roving is perfection.  It spins so easily that I had a full bobbin in no time.  I bought two balls of this at the fiber festival in NC about a year ago and can't believe it has taken me so long to get to it.  I am spinning up the second ball this afternoon and then will 2-ply it tomorrow.  I have never spun Wensleydale before as all the festivals I have gone to have been full of Merino, Romney, Corriedale, and Leicester (and I've used a little Shetland from a friend of mine).  This is so soft and so CLEAN.  Just a pleasure to spin.  The card in the bag said Fleeces, Rovings, and Yarn at  I hope she has plenty of wool because I know I will be ordering more.
