I was able to complete the spinning and plying of the Shetland locks I had combed with my hand combs. I now have 87 yards of worsted weight 2 ply yarn. I think what was most startling about the Shetland was the difference in locks. Some were quite coarse and others were nice and soft. I think I could have done a better job blending them but I was too impatient to see what hand combed top spun like. Lesson learned!
