...and you have to branch out into goats. Angora goats, to be specific, the kind which provide mohair to all of us fiber-obsessed types. So here's a teeny tiny sample spun of mohair hand carded with a little bit of Romney lamb. It's slippery, shiny, and soft. Drafting it took a bit of practice, but I'll have lots more practice because I have 3 more larger samples of carded and combed blends and plain mohair locks to work on. And a side tidbit; every time I spin Romney, I think of Franklin Habit's version of Poe's The Raven, titled, The Romney. Unfortunately I can't find the text anywhere on line, but you can hear it read by Franklin himself on this episode of Brenda Dayne's Cast On.
