Both of these were spun and plyed on the new Rose, on the regular flyer. (I'm still waiting on the wild flyer with jumbo bobbins, so I had to make due.) I really love the copper and brown one. My friend, Becky, donated some hand dyed locks to the effort, which matched perfectly! I absolutely love spinning on the Rose! If you ever have the opportunity to try it out, you will fall in love!
Spent the day spinning in Seguin and this is the result. Corespun and plyed. 58 yards, mostly merino, firestar and mohair and lincoln locks, spun over an electric green mohair core which appears from time to time. It looked horrendously overspun when it came off the skeiner, but after a good wash is hanging to dry almost completely balanced. I really love spinning this kind of yarn and am currently awaiting delivery of a Majacraft Rose with wild flyer kit from New Zealand. A very lucky friend of mine picked one up recently for a pittance in San Antonio and I got a chance to spin on it. It's a dream wheel! Should arrive in a couple of weeks and I can hardly wait! Was really hoping it would get here in time for ROC day, January 5th, but that's probably not going to happen. My Louet Victoria will be for sale, in order to make room for The Rose.
