learning to spin at Saori Santa Cruz Studio

Lisa loves her mustang horse Chico. she wanted to learn how to spin so that she could use chico's beautiful redish brown under coat for making yarn. 

 First we praticed on already carded roving
  Then I showed Lisa how to  charge the  hand carders with fiber  and then to blend colors...

A  nice blue rolag

Lisa's first little blended mustang horse hair  and wool hand spun skein!
