I have some really beautiful pin-drafted Cormo fiber that I bought from Morro Fleece Works. I decided to try spinning it long-draw woolen. I have never spun long-draw very successfully and thought that this lovely soft fiber would be a good candidate for it.
It's kind of fun to draft ahead of the twist and it's certainly a fast way to spin. However I'm not really happy with the results. Part of the problem is that I need a whole lot more practice to be good at it and part of the problem is that I seldom knit bulkier yarn as it hurts my hands. At least for me, getting a finer yarn from long-draw spinning would be difficult. By its very nature, long-draw is not as consistent as short worsted draw and it's fluffier. Being the control freak that I am, I quite like the short forward draw of a fine worsted wool. I can spin laceweight very consistently and ply two or more bobbins together for fingering or DK weight yarn.
