Sabrina's Sample

Hello Blog,

Today I have a bit of a spinning FO.  1.8 ounces spun up into approximately 190 yards of 'fingering weight' yarn.  19 WPI.

Not sure what the fiber was, all I know is that it came from Maryland Sheep and Wool from what seems like 100 years ago. It's probably Merino though. Staple length is relatively short compared to what I'm used to spinning. 

Spun this as a single all on one bobbin and then chain plied it to get a three ply. Seems like light fingering/heavy lace weight to me. Ish. It blows my mind how imprecise those definitions can really be.

Spun this up for my sister. Not sure what she will do with it, but  I hope she likes it :) 

As always, check out more FOs at Tami's
