Here is a little bit of yarn I have been spinning. It’s kid mohair. This is 300 yards. This yarn presents an interesting story. Several years ago, perhaps 2002, I received a commission for this kid mohair yarn. The lady wanted something from some fiber she had acquired, but didn’t know what. Well, she decided what she would like, and I produced that. I believe she was pleased, and she paid, but there was still 1/2 of her fiber left, and she wasn’t sure what she wanted. So she said she would get back with me. Six years later, I got a message that she called, and wanted to know if I still had the fiber! And I did! I can’t tell you how many times over those 6 years, I wanted to reach this lady, but I have changed computers twice in that time, and the first time, lost all data, so I had not information on how to contact her.
The fiber just sat on a shelf for 6 years. I has felted to itself, but it was nice roving, so I’ve been able to pull most of it apart so far. Can you imaging how many times I almost threw that fiber away? Well, here are pics of the yarn that I am spinning from this rather old kid mohair.
