All the info you could ever need about Tour de Fleece here.
The tour starts on July 4th, but I think I have figured out what I want to spin already. I will probably change my mind about it a bit (a lot) after we start. I hope to do daily picture posts (probably won’t have time to write much).
This is an awesome chance to spin some fiber from some of my favorite suppliers on some of my favorite spindles (and wheels – more about that at a later date).
Like many other spinners; I tend to accumulate quite a bit of fiber. It’s easier (a LOT easier) to buy fiber or yarn that to actually create something with it. In the Spin the Bin Challenge every spinner makes a commitment to spin a pre-determined set of at least 12 fibers from their stash. The spinning must be finished before the end of 2015. Furthermore each spinner can choose to donate the fibers from the bin that weren’t spun before the end of the year.
Here are the fibers I have committed to spinning this year:
Fiber Quirks The Tarot Series Hand-carded Batts: The Star Merino 100g/3.5oz
Porpoise Fur Rita’s Bedroom Falkland 115g/4.0oz
Hilltop Cloud Robin Merino, BFL, Manx Loaghtan, Yak 100g/3.5oz
Hilltop Cloud Blue Nile Merino, Corriedale, Tussah Silk, Stellina 100g/3.5oz
