Competition results!

  1. Combed sliver
  2. Carded, woollen
  3. From the lock
  4. Carded, semi worsted

Congratulations Mary de B!  You are the winner of the Bowmont competition, getting all four correct!  Drop me an email to remind me of your address (I know I had it before, but I lost it – sorry!) and I’ll send you your prize.  Leigh, you were so close I think you deserve a prize too, so again, I’ll be after your postal address so I can send it.  Anyone who is interested in seeing more Bowmont photos *must* check out Leigh’s blog, by the way.  She has been spinning it *incredibly* fine (singles at 66wpi, anyone?!?) and has some lovely photos of wool staples, comparing Bowmont  with Shetland and merino (the two breeds used to create the Bowmont sheep).  You can see the wonderful, fine, regular crimp of the wool in those photos, too (something I forgot to record before washing my allocated fibre).


  • Oh wowee! I never win anything, and to think I can win at something spinning related…. I’ll send you a proper e-mail in a mo! Thanks!

  • Wow! How did I miss this post! I’ve gotten too far behind in my blog reading. I can’t belive it! I came in 2nd(?) I think though, that your spinning is much more consistent than you realize. Very pleasing to the eye.
