Yarnspinners Tales's Podcast

Welcome!  This is a periodic podcast all about my experiences making yarn through the process of spinning.  All areas of the process are discussed, and there will be something here for any spinner, novice or experienced.  There is a Ravelry group for podcast listeners, called Yarnspinnerstales Spin In. Please join us there.

If skirting a fleece makes you think of running to your nearby clothing store, you really need to listen to this spinning podcast.  Find out just how you take a five pound raw fleece and get it ready for the wash.

Today's music found on the podsafe music network, is provided by:

MDL with Acoustic Heart

Tom Smith with Stupid Belated Valentine

The next podcast will be a spin-in, with lots of heart related music in honor of the month of February, as well as some yarnspinnerstales.  See you then, and thanks for listening.

Skirting is used as a verb in fleece preparation. It is actually in the dictionary as removing the parts of the fleece that are undesirable. Yes, most people have no idea what it means to \\\"skirt\\\" a fleece. It is not a verb used even when one says \\\"I will skirt around the edge of the canyon to find a way down to the interior.\\\" We tend to only use the noun. Enough geek-ness. Thanks for your podcast.

I just found your pod cast (saw it on the Ravelry list) and as a new spinner, I enjoyed it very much. I will look forward to more! and to going back in time to see what else you\\\'ve done.

Thanks! Julie
