Is this Full Enough?

My hands don't want to do very much these days, but I did manage to spin some yarn onto my drop-spindle. I'm thinking I should take this off the spindle before continuing. I have at least a half-bag of wool to go, and I don't want to struggle with the spindle becoming too full. Especially for "Kathyinozarks", this is Romney wool. I know you are surprised I bought more of that, but it's not dyed and spins more easily.

I am happy you tired romney again-I usually can tell when to take it off the spindle-it feels a little heavy and it does not spin as well-good job!

I think it is time to take it off. If you are asking, then it is probably getting harder to spin and draft. As it gets too heavy, it is more likely to break on you and become frustrating. At least that is my theory.
