Tour De Fleece starts and my Guild Fibre Day

Today was my own Guild's Fibre Day, so I took some of my Alpaca, sheep and camel fibre to sell, as well as my spinning wheel so that I could get some of the texal fleece spun, as my part of the Fleece de Tour.
The guild day went well, it was in conjunction with the Farming Museum where we hold our meetings. Some of the ladies were doing indigo dyeing, some felting and some spinning. It was an enjoyable day.
As to the spinning I managed to get two bobbins finished and put onto a niddy noddy

The texal is quite an interesting fleece to spin, whilst I was plying the yarn it has a sheen to it, that I was not expecting. Will be interesting to see how much I get spun over the next few weeks.
