    I’ve picked up some Bulgarian spindles and a distaff. Haven’t had a chance to try them yet.

    This is likely that basic roving that Woodland Woolworks used to sell. I dyed it with Landscape Midnight Blue, the same time that I did the Shipwrecked Shawl. Lon wants a watch cap and I plan to use this for the project. I’m thinking about a 3 ply yarn.
