Today the Tour de France started and with it the Tour de Fleece, when we let our spinning wheels and spindles whirl as the cyclist whirl their wheels.
I went to Spinspul in Almere which had opened a brand new brick and mortar store.
From this wall I took some merino and bfl and angelina to make some rolls.
I played with a good Ashford drum carder to try and make them:
Steep learning curve, that’s my first attempt on the far right.
I put it on a temporary holder (known as TP carton centre or “wc-rolletje” amongst non-spinners) to transport it home.
100 grams of rolls and another 100 grams in the bag.
I’ll show you tomorrow.
