Well, it seems I've been on a bit of a spinning kick lately. ;-)
I had a small amount (1/4 ounce) of Bison that came in the same package as the Qiviut.
All I can really say is that spinning Bison is the exact opposite experience as spinning Qiviut. This preparation of Bison was hairy with a varied staple length.
It required a tight twist to keep the yarn from separating.
All of the hair and varied lengths has resulted in a more rustic looking yarn. The downy part is quite soft though. So I suppose with more practice and perhaps a different preparation I could make a nicer yarn. I plant to look for more at the Estes Park Wool Market in June.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday.
