great fiber for beginners
I just started spinning some painted roving from High Prairie...it is so fabulously easy to spin, I had to come and give it a plug! Very affordable, too.

It smelled a little funky when I got it (had to air it out on the porch), and the color was a bit off from the site (more than would be expected imho) so I was a little leery...but omg, after spinning it, I'd buy more in a heartbeat.

I've considered them
I've looked into HP for fiber. I love their different types. The end of day roving is interesting to me. I'll probably be ordering from them after I spin my Spinning Bunny targhee. Thank you for the review and the pic!

I LOVE the way it's spinning up on your spindle!
