I'll sleep well tonight

Just so you didn't think I'd taken my day off (from flying) off, I got up early and hit the ground running by working on washing up my grey romney/lincoln fleece, washing some white romney that I was going to get into the dye pot, and actually dyeing said white fleece: I also needed to make some Merino/Tencel hand dyed rovings in a certain colorway for a customer's order, so that got done too:
In between waiting for the dye to cook and all that fun, I managed to get another sample done. Today I spun the Perrandale which is very much like CVM. I'm not even half way done with the samples, but I keep trying a little bit at a time.

You know, I just read this again, and I realized something. You said that Perendale is similar to CVM, but it's actually a longwool breed that is coarse like Cotswold. Could your sample be mislabeled?
