Then the dilemma - I couldn't get up out of the chair. It was to low to the ground and my knees and hips couldn't push me up. Darn I hate getting old! So here I am - trying to roll off the chair onto the patio so I can get my feet under me and stand up - and I'm laughing at myself. So what has any of this got to do with fibers?
Well - as many other people seem to be doing, I am going through my Stash 'O Fibers and what do I find - Dryer Lint!!!
You remember Dryer Lint! About the early - mid 90's when the hand spinners were getting a little bored with the "all one fiber, all one color" spinning batts and roving, there appeared a spinning batt that was usually 1 color, but it had texture to it by blending in other fibers. I happened to find a 4oz bag of lavender wool with Bombex and Tussah silk.
I don't usually care for lavender - purple, yes but as I bought this back in the 90's sometime - I'm sure I liked it. Spun up it is even more interesting
