Spinning the yarn - Mohair series 6 of 7

The machines that spin the mohair yarn at Mohair Spinners South Africa in Uitenhage are absolutely amazing.  My mouth hung open when they showed us how clever the machines are.  The moment the thread is broken the specific line would stop, unwind a bit and reattach the two end of the thread so well that you can barely see the place where it broke.  All automatically and very futuristic looking.  Rolls of yarn are available for purchase in the factory shop next door at Hinterveld at a fraction of what you would pay for them elsewhere.

  1. Wow, that's one fancy set up. I'll remember to buy there. Can add to my silk yarn purchases from the last trip. Maybe I could use them together.
