Handspun: CVM/Corriedale Cross "Jane"
On a still autumn morning, the grass was yet green.
Leaves of a Willow were yellow, Cottonwood--brown.
The light, just right, low and long.
The first big skein of yarn I have spun, from fleece I have washed, dried, and combed myself. I love the subtle shades of caramel, beige, tan and honey. The advantage of combing it yourself as opposed to getting it processed into roving is you can maintain these distinct color variations.
CVM/Corriedale cross is a nice fiber. On the finest side of medium or the coarser side of fine. Nice 4 inch or so staple length, good crimp and lock structure. Easy to handcomb. Lovely soft yarn I could wear next to my skin.

I'm really looking forward to finishing up this fleece and having a good useable amount of yarn for a large project!
