The finished yarn measures approx 22 wpi

This bobbin of beautiful yarn was spun by my friend, Louise, on my Louet while we were on vacation together.  Luckily for me, she really was in a spinning mood and hadn't brought her wheel.  I was happy to have her spin up the fiber I had brought!  This fiber is from Linda at Grafton Fibres in VT.  www.graftonfibres.com
There's just about 7 ounces, and over 700 yards (about 16000 yards per pound)
I plan to ply it to, or carry it with, some beautiful commercial mohair--see below.
