Prepping wool for spinning

Not all fibers are prepped the same way. Often they can be combed, spun from the locks or if you are lucky to have it mill prepped, it will make the process faster. Above is some of the hand dyed Lincoln wool I did earlier.

What I found with the Lincoln wool is that you really need to pull it apart into almost a frizzy frenzy. I also combed it with a hand carder. There is a lot of lanolin in this wool so it needs to be prepped properly. 

When it is prepped properly it spins up amazingly! 

This is a lovely, strong yarn but the most wonderful part is the colors and the softness.
