What materials did you use? Recently acquired some lambs wool from a lamb that is a Wensleydale CVM mix. His names is Sala.

oh those are so lovely!! i would feel the same way... if you just pull them apart gently and don't card, you'll still see some of the lock formation and some of the little curls will pop out as you spin. there's also tailspinning, where you just spin the very tip and let the long lock hang off, but it's hard to do on a spindle!

so carding isnt always necessary or would that just be for art yarn? i love that curly look, too.

no, you can spin without carding, although i think it will produce what most people would call "art yarn"! it's all about the look you want - and it really depends on the fleece too - sometimes you can just grab hunks and spin them, and it still comes out smooth.
