Spinning Shetland

I started spinning the shetland wool that came in a little baggie in the sampler pack I bought at Maryland Sheep and Wool. It told me to spin it thin. As of yet, I seem to have no control over such matters and just leave it up to the fiber to decide. I love the slightly-tanned-gray color of the wool. Might there be enough of it for the Trellis scarf in the last Interweave Knits? We'll see....

I, too, am struggling to hear what the fiber has to say about how it wants to be spun. I am beginning to think that's a part of spinning that can take a long time to understand.
Your shetland seems to know best, though. It looks beautiful.

Shetland is one of my favorite fibers to spin; yours looks lovely! Looking forward to seeing how it goes!

That Shetland looks pretty thin to me! I'd love to see how a Trellis looks in handspun.
