Tail Spun Yarn Emerald Wave



My most recent yarn.  This is spun using locks from one of my shearling sheep and then dyed.  The locks are about 10 inches long and would probably pull out another inch or so.  The yarn is chunky about 5 wpi and heavy for its length  as the locks are dense,  but it is really soft to touch and as you can see from the photos shines like silk.  Not all fleeces produce this quality of lock and very little of the fleece produces fiber of this quality .  I made 3 skeins all different weights the 100 gram one is about 28 yards long
