I was pleasantly surprised after coming home from visiting my in-laws to find that my package of new Manos roving arrived in the mail!
It is so beautiful looking and extremely soft. It is 100% Extra Fine Merino and is 3.5 ounces. The colorway based on Fairmount’s website and the tag on the braid appears to be Bramble RM9237.
I cannot wait to spin this up on my Sidekick!
Speaking of my Sidekick, it’s been making some weird whistle noise and then as I’m treadling, it becomes very hard to which I can’t treadle any longer. I checked the drive band and it was fine but it smelled like it was rubbing against something and caused friction. Strange? I’m pretty sure my Sidekick may need oiled but does anyone else know why that could be happening if it’s not due to not having oiled my wheel??
Well, I will leave you with this delicious picture of wool- enjoy!
