Spinning Class: Session IV

Our topic for today's class was cotton and it's preparation for spinning. In a way I was pick'n cotton - actually just removing the seeds and hull pieces then rolling them into rolags - what I called little cinnamon rolls ready to be spun. It's amazing to me that a person can pick cotton in a field and turn it into something useful. I really like working with this fiber but unfortunately, I'm not aware of any cotton fields close by.
