Okay, so I'm not very good (yet), but I managed to get some singles yarn! It was a little more difficult since Andrew liked my spindle hanging and kept touching it, which would throw off the spin! I have some lovely colored roving, but I wanted to start with white so that I didn't waste the color! This is Coopworth wool which I found this information about:
Fiber characteristics: The wool is silky with a "high spiral-type" crimp, a bright luster, and pointed at the tips. Staples may be round or flat.
Average fleece weight: Fleece weights average 10-13 lbs.
Average fiber length: The staple length is 6-8 inches.
Micron diameter: 35-39 (coarse)
