Tunis Fleece Makes Good Yarn

Way back in the spring, one of my co-workers gave me a fleece (wool from a sheep) that she wasn't going to have time to spin.  It was a Tunis fleece from one of the sheep at Conner Prairie and it was lovely!  The wool is soft enough to use next to the skin, and so springy that it is fun to spin!

I started spinning this back in March and had it all spun into singles a month or two ago, but it wasn't until yesterday that I finished plying.  Hooray!

The fleece yielded 8 skeins of 2-ply yarn, 200-300 yds per skein.  That's 1600-2400 yds of yarn. :)
