Hello to all, and thanks for letting me contribute. This is my current handspun project. I am using some nice Jacob fleece that I purchased, washed, flicked and spun from the locks. It is a fingering weight yarn. The shawl is from A german site but the pattern is in English. I love this wool, it was so easy to spin. I have heard that Jacob wool is coarse, and it is, but this is a soft coarse. I really like the color variations in it. From black to almost white, and all shades of grey in between. The photo looks more taupe, but it's really grey.

Very nice. Very similar to the color I got from blending 6 differnet fibers. Nice.
