Very Fine Angora Yarn

Monica bought some white English Angora wool from Betty, she says,
"I did it on a Turkish Spindle and the fiber is just such a dream to spin!"

 "I have only gotten this skein done so far, but if I can spin all of it the same thickness, I will end up with approxmately 1200 yards from 4 ounces! "
That is some fine spinning.  With 4 ounces, Monica can get 1200 yards of double plied yarn with a Turkish spindle.   Betty says, "I will never be able to do it so well!"

    Wow! Betty, Thank you so much for posting about my yarn! I really am in love with working with it! It spins so beautiful and is just a dream to work with! If anyone is interested in looking at it, they can see it at Once again, thank you!

    Monica: Your spinning is unbelievable. If you feel like to enter a smaller skein for competition at the ARBA national convention, go to

    to learn about the rules and where to send the skein to.

    I think you have a very good chance of winning. I can never spin like that.

    Betty, I am definitely looking into entering some yarn for the ARBA yarn competition, but I will have to spin up a larger skein because the form says it must be at least 1 ounce!
