Combed Corriedale Fiber

It’s now 580 yards of 2-ply fingering weight yarn. This yarn was spun using essentially a short forward draw. I don’t have a “clean” short forward draw in that some of the twist runs into the drafting triangle. The yarn did not poof up as much as I expected with the finishing, but it is pleasingly soft.
