The Boy Who Cried WOLF!

No, I'm not going to tell the old story about the boy that cried wolf....this is the story about a bit of commissioned spinning that Susie recently finished. A young man from around here advertised for someone to spin some special "wool" for him which turned out to be undercoat combings from his dog which is part wolf. We met with him and looked the fiber over and Susie took the work. There were almost 6 ounces of fiber that averaged less than an inch in length which proved to be somewhat of a challenge but since Susie can spin cotton and other short staple fiber, she prevailed! Tomorrow we are meeting him in town to deliver the finished 3 skeins which he is taking to his mother to have knit into something for him to wear.
