Samoyed dog fur - finished spinning

Longdraw is like magic when it works well. This was difficult to spin because there's absolutely no length to the fibres (some was fluffy and very short, some was a little longer and coarser, I assume this is soft undercoat and coarser outer coat)

But by the end, with lots of practice, the singles were flowing well. I found that tight punis worked best

This is just a part of the total, I now have seven skeins altogether, maybe 5-600 yards. I understand that this came from just one brushing!
