Tony: I would be VERY interested in how to spin/pack lamb's wool. I just had a 
friend who raises sheep send me a big box of wool. I'm cc'ing this to you as my 
messages have been getting lost for the most part. Thanks, Chuck

        Rene,
        Being "self thought" I started spinning on a bare hook shank and that 
is the way I have done it all the time except when I tried to spin on a thread 
covered hook a couple of times. That did not suit me at all. I found I could 
not pack the hair as tight as I would like.
        If interested, I can post some of my other deer hair bugs. I not only 
spin deer hair this way but also lambs wool. I have a Lizard I made that way. 
The lambs wool will pack just as tight.
        Tony

          How do you keep it with the hook's shank? Do you lay a thread base in
          the first step are are you spinng on the basre hook?
