Somehow I've neglected to show this, the very first skein off my new Schacht-Reeves wheel, even though I've had it done for two weeks.

first skein from the Schacht-Reeves

This is 100 grams of superfine New Zealand merino, spun and plied on the Schacht-Reeves.  The skein contains 1,286 yards, and the yarn is about 45-50 wraps per inch.  Super, super soft.

It was a joy to spin.  The fiber drafted perfectly, the wheel spun fast and quiet, and it was wonderful.
