For my spin kin out there a tip: Many times I have tried to concoct a spinning oil to spray onto my fleece to cause the fibers to slip more easily and evenly as I spin. Until now I have not succeeded. Recently on a whim I tried mixing a few hefty squirts of Queen Helene Cocoa Butter hand lotion with water in a spray bottle. I have sprayed my fleece liberally and then let it dry out completely. I then picked and carded it and was pleasantly surprised to find that it spun up like a dream- and this is dyed wool which has had all the lanolin scoured out to facilitate dyeing. Worth a try folks.
