As promised, here are the pictures of the Superfine Merino and Cheviot wool blend I am hand spinning.  For the Phat Fiber samples, we included either red Wensleydale locks or sparkle to represent the berries, but mine does not have either.  I just love spinning this.  The Cheviot gives strength and durability to the Merino and the Merino helps soften the Cheviot.  A perfect match :)

"Strawberry Ice Cream" (hold the berries, please)

We are still washing fleece.  I've been washing a fleece that we purchased last year at the Indiana Fiber and Music Festival and I have lost all the information.  I don't know what kind of sheep it is nor who it was purchased from.  I've taken pictures so if anybody wants to weigh in, that would be wonderful!

approximately 3 1/2 inches

Still much more fleece to wash.  I'm going to try to get another batch done before bed....
