this time i did buy $10 worth of roving (i think it adds up to 3 pounds!) should be enough for quite awhile :teehee:

that's a good price. I just don't know if I could do the recarding. Pretty roving, though.

I bought some of this ladys wool.. the wool I got didnt really need any carding... the thing that was bad, was the shipping from canada :-x I bought two pounds and it seems like they wanted around 15 to ship it...still a good price for merino superwash though..her service was very fast as well..

The fiber I bought from her didn't need carding either. I think she has to say that just in case...

Great customer service too -- she had some seacell fiber up a few months ago. I commented on another spinning board (which the seller also frequents) that I would hate to buy a pound of seacell and find that I didn't like to spin it. She saw my post, PMed me, and offered to send me a sample. :thumbsup:

It came fairly quickly but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. :D

Hmmm, I might have to give it another look. It's such a good price and so pretty.

i just paid through paypal, and it came to $31 and some change. shipping is a bit high since it is coming from Ontario, but it still averages to less than a dollar an ounce, so still a great deal.

julie, thanks for the info... i was a bit worried and started to look for hand carders... i think i will wait for it to get here, and see. if i do need to buy some, i think my LYS carries them :shrug:

i am very excited to learn to spin!!

I wouldn't worry about the carders, jeanius. I've only used them for raw wool. When you draft the fiber, it will all fall into place.

thanks for the tip shandeh...i am sure if i had to card too i probably would have ended up with a bit knotted mess:teehee:

I ordered some roving from that seller on May 1st and haven't received it yet. I've been so busy, that it didn't occur to me until I read the post that it's been over the 7-9 business day shipping that she quoted me. I e-mailed her this morning to find out when it shipped and if she has a way to track it. I hope it didn't get lost. :pray:
