Spinning Royale

My most recent spinning project is this lovely blue-green wool roving I got at a Renaissance faire a while back. I was going to use it on a drop spindle but I haven't quite gotten the hang of that yet, and I'm really enjoying my wheel. This wool is lovely and soft and is spinning up beautifully.

The wool I'm spinning was dyed by Karen Emrey from The Royal Hare. She has some really pretty hand dyed wool roving, silk hankies (for spinning), and some neat sparkly fiber called firestar, as well as some of her own handspun yarn. It's also a plus that she's faire folk, so I'll definitely be ordering some fiber from her in the future. Her website:
