|Spinning Polwarth / Silk Fiber|
I recently purchased some 85 percent Polwarth / 15% Silk blend of fiber. Polwarth is a breed of sheep that is a cross between merino and lincoln sheep. Polwarth fiber is next to skin soft and has a nice staple length that makes it easy to spin even using a hand spindle. It has been a joy to spin! I am hoping to get around five hundred yards of two ply yarn off of this four ounces of top roving.
Do you have any experience spinning polwarth? I would love for you to share your handspun so you are welcome to link in the comments!
