  1. Hi Jadee!

    Regarding your overspun yarn - just spin it back onto your wheel onto a spare bobbin the opposite way to which you plied it - it'll take some of the overspin out of it. :)


  2. I am not a spinner but i thought your yarn looked beautiful. I think it would make a great cowl. Thanks for the smiles.
