a camel, a sheep and a worm

This was a bit experimental but I love the way it's turned out - I'm going to have to card and spin loads more and make something special from it.

I wanted to try mixing camel top (which is quite short) with something longer - it's 70% 'white' camel, 20% white merino and 10% silk. I carded and carded so that the fibres are really mixed together well, pre-drafted and spun it short draw so that the result is really smooth, silky and well-packed.

Not sure that the colour has come out very well under the flourescent lamp but in real life it's a lovely pale.. well... camel colour, all silky and lustrous.
