Here are some details about my project:
Category Spinning
Style Traditional
Cindi Gibson on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? Black tones Brown Sheep wool mill ends (Corriedale, Columbian, Ramboulet) 70% blended with black bamboo 30%. Spun at 16 wpi to produce a lovely fingering yarn.

What are you most proud of? Spinning a consistent fingering weight yarn which would be adaptable to many different textile applications. This yarn would also prove very nice as weft in weaving.
