It Takes Commitment
I've had a small basket of merino/silk top sitting with my spindle for months now. In only a few days I've spun this most recent cop's worth. When I add it to the ball I had already, the basket can be refilled with the next project, a similar colourway of the same merino/silk to be combined with this one as a 2 ply.
(I use the tiny needle felted ball use see there as a core when I hand wind balls of singles in preparation for plying).
