Interested members received about 2 ounces of Teeswater fleece we purchased from Susan McFarland. It had been washed. Members were to work with the fleece * prepare it and spin it and hopefully make something using it.  Everyone agreed it was soft and lustrous. It is a very long staple and seemed to work best combing it. One member did use a drum carder and had no problem because of the long staple, but she was not able to spin it very fine. There does seem to be a lot of waste when it is combed. There were several finished skeins of hand spun ranging from fine, lace weight to worsted weight.  All had a very nice sheen. Many thought it reminded them of mohair.  One felt that it has a nice halo. There was one finished project * a small purse combining it with another yarn which was made on a knitting machine. Teeswater by itself did not knit on the machine, but worked well when combined as a 2nd color and it shows up well because of the sheen. A question was raise as to where this breed originated and if it is considered a rare breed. Hopefully someone will research this and report back to the guild.  We didn*t discuss this, but it would be interesting to hear some suggestions for the uses of Teeswater yarn.
