Despite this, Gill and Annette managed to spin two skeins each and Alison spun Corriedale and Soybean fibre The women were victorious!!

I'm drowning a little bit in fibre at the moment, hopefully in the next few days I'll be posting some new fibre onto my etsy shop (which I have to say is looking a little bit depleted at the moment). The aforementioned soybean fibre, which both myself and Alison loved, will be on there in packs of 100g and also smaller packs to have a little go at if you're not sure. I think this image shows the beautiful colour of the soybean which spins similarly to silk, a short staple and quite a lot of it up your nose.
The bamboo fibres look very lovely too
Beautiful.. but not as lovely as the Princess locks soybean. There will also be some flax and some Wensleydale. Not sure about flax really, but as soon as I've spun some I will report back.
Just to finish on, here's a link to something that has had me laughing all week. If you're feeling a bit down, watch this a couple of times. It you don't laugh, check your pulse!
See you soon
