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 www.die-wollust.de. 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.
