Tour de Fleece Day 14: 5 minute delight prompt.


Today I arrived at the cabin and brought the Hilltop Cloud Gradient Pack -you can see it in the back ground on the right- and the purple (green) single I’m plying with the silk that’s need to be spun -it’s on the Louet S70-.

There was not much time today but I managed to spin for a few minutes on my Scandic slanty. Such a great experience.

Spinning on this wheel is such a delight. It’s all wood, rope and leather and it was made decades ago, following a design that’s been around for centuries. Designed for and used in these exact circumstances: a woman in her wooden house, turning a sheep’s fleece into a usable item, in Summer. An independent woman, living her life. Someone familiar with nature and its rhythms.

I will be staying in the cabin for a few days now. Recharging. Catching my breath.
