I am the happy recipient of Peg's recent stash cleaning. This is all cotton ....
A closer look ....
Lovely natural cotton rovings from The Bellwether.
Luscious organic cotton from Mielke's Fiber Arts
"Real" poonis (as opposed to mine, click here to see how I make them) neatly wrapped in a newspaper in who knows what language.
Interestingly, I already have a cone of that pencil roving! The bit from Peg has a label in non-American spelling,
"Cotton Pencil Roving
Colour - Solar Flame"
I got mine came from Holly Bee when I was taking weaving lessons there 8 and a half years ago. Talk about a small world!
I promise that I tried to encourage Peg to spin at least some of this herself, but I can't say that I'm not delighted that she prefers spinning other things. I'm happy to be able to look forward to more cotton spinning in the future.
