After not spinning since I was 12 which was a long long time ago, I recently fell in love with some Burgandy & silver silk Marano roveing and just had to have it. I bought an Ashford drop spindel at the same time and I'm just loveing how it spins. It's soooo smooth and balanced.
I practiced on some less expensive wool first and was pleasantly surprised at how well it came out.
Have a great day!
