Using my Diz

I wish I had taken a picture when I first opened the fiber bundle. Guess I was just too excited to get started! This is the Aqua Fresca colorway from Lisa Souza. Zen Top. 50% Merino, 25% Tussah Silk, 25% Bamboo. The fiber was a bit compacted from dyeing. I opened the fibers and then stripped lengths and opened them even more. I am using a diz that I made from cow horn.(available in my etsy shop soon) Can't wait to start spinning. I love this fiber.

After opening a bit.

Through the diz.

See how it smooths the fiber.

Fiber *nests* ready to spin.

I have only just started the prep. This basket will be quite full when finished.
