I love the mohair top but do you have any hints on spinning it? I have spun it in the past and the resulting yarn while thin is too heavy and dense.

The best tip I can give you when spinning mohair is to break it into sections and spin it from the fold. This helps trap more air in the fiber making it more of a 'woolen spun' yarn.

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
