Spinning Angora

I am spinning some dyed angora today. I kettle dyed and then carded it. I found that it sticks a bit when spinning even though I carded it. I rubbed my hands on a dryer sheet - that helped - I also sprayed a fine mist of water with a drop or two of fabric softener in it - that really works if you don't spray too much. I put a towel across my lap to catch the stray fiber - it really helps keep things neat.
