This is what I spent my evening doing :) Spinning yarn & watching "Clash of the Titans" with Lamar. I found the dream catcher for $5 at Thriftmart & immediately thought "I could SPIN this!!!"
1. Thrifted Dream Catcher; 2. Salvaged roving; 3. Pet slicker brushes for carding; 4. blended rolags; 5. salvaged roving spun into yarn.
So after cleaning up my roving, I was able to spin a whole dark brown section on the drop spindle I bought from Ms. Melissa. Then I practiced carding (which is NOT as easy as it looks... at least not with slicker brushes). I carded/rolled the white & orange fiber. Then I worked on blending the two. I'm going to spin them tomorrow, I think (once I take the brown yarn off the spindle).
Another thing I noticed about the scavenged dream catcher fiber is that the white fiber is half the length as the orange & brown fiber. So that's got me thinking that it may not all be wool, but I have more research to do on that front. I do know it's all animal fiber (I did the burn test). Now I've just got to figure out what fiber it is.
Anywho, it's late & I'm heading to sleep because we're going to actually have Crafternoon tomorrow! Huzzah!
