Comments about Louet Leicester Carded Sliver Spinning Fiber:

I am using this for Spinzilla 2014. It is a nice price for 8 oz of sliver which drafts beautifully, making this perfect for the novice spinner. Beautifully clean, but with a bit of VM and vibrant white color should make this a favorite for dying as this fiber has that lovely gleam that the Leicesters are famous for. It is NOT a soft fiber, but will make a sturdy yarn for hardwearing socks, hats, and gloves.
My one complaint about this is the sheepy smell of this fiber. It isn't noticeable in the dry fiber, but when I went to set my skein, it was, almost to the point of being offensive (it honked to high heaven!!!). I hope this will soon go away with subsequent washings
