Here's the information about the world record attempt, very kindly left by Misty Cottage Crafts on the comments. The info is from http://www.winghamwoolwork.co.uk/
We're Record Breakers!
Well, to be more precise Ruth is a Guinness World Record breaker.
On the 23rd of September Ruth set the record for the worlds longest continuous thread spun in an hour. Coming in at 99.45m this was verified by the official adjudicator and Ruth was presented with the official Guinness Certificate.
The thread was a 2-ply yarn made of Shetland fleece, entirely prepared and spun by hand. We're all wondering what's next, and with winter looming on the horizon it just may have to be the worlds longest scarf! Congratulations!
Thanks Misty for letting us know.
