    Funny, was tying some of these last night as an intro (for me) to hair spinning. I love your spartan use that makes it looks absolutely stunning!

    Thanks :cool:

    By using the correct hair, and knowing when to apply tension, working with deer hair - be it spinning or stacking - is a lot of fun as well as producing some good effective patterns.

    Cheers,
