Description:Handcarded up all this fiber (62.8 oz total) and put it through the Kitten Drumcarder fine drum to make many batts. I tore off stripps from the sides of the batts, predrafted the strips, and spun it up with short forward draw. For The Balderdash 2019, I spun up Skeins 7-9. Gonna weave this up with other hanspun 2 ply from other Romney fleeces into a T-tunic to wear in the Society for Creative Anachronism.
