Black Merino

I purchased some foreign wool!
Five hundred grams of Black Merino, 21 mic., from Wingham Woolworks (probably my last purchase form the UK as, well they are not European any more so bye bye).
Anyway, it is very nice stiff - originates in South Africa I believe, now all I have to do is spin it all into nice even 2-plys of yarn around sport weight and I can continue to use it for edging various projects such as joining colorful crocheted squares to make a throw.
This type of spinning I'm doing on the electric spinner - it is a lot more like work than the spinning I do on my Traveler wheel in my spinning den using my own sheep fleece, which is more of a labour of love.

This may take some time.
