Slippery Purple Slope

I am currently spinning this fiber, which I got from Webs in Northampton, Massachusetts in September. Wow, it's slippery stuff - a bit more challenging than spinning corriedale. Unfortunately I am not sure of the fiber blend. The color combination is pretty. It isn't making a variegated yarn, so I don't intend to Navajo ply it. I think this will be one where I ply two singles together. Webs, um, well, Web page is http://yarn.com/. Lots of goodies on the site. Before you are tempted, be sure you have reaffirmed that you DO NOT NEED ANOTHER SPINNING WHEEL...

I guess I didn't listen when you said another spinning wheel?? Well, now that I have three wheels and made 5 more drop spindles, I guess I didn't pay much attention!!

Hi! How are you?
Your blog is fine, good to know you're spinning, this must be a great thing to do.
I've never tried, maybe one day.
Good to see you
