You get an incredible sense of achievement when you turn raw wool into a finished product. A pair of booties, or mittens or a warm wool cap. Not everyone can spin. It takes patience, particularly when you are learning and have to get used to tensioning the wheel correctly. But when you know how to spin, and you take raw wool and move it through the processes until it is finished garment, you experience one of the few truly creative, self-reliant moments the modern consumer-driven Western world can give you.
