I purchased this corriedale fiber from the CT Sheep and Wool Festival. After spinning and plying, I ended up with almost 200 yards of fingering yarn. This was the perfect amount to make my sister these fingerless mittens for her birthday. I used size one needles for a really dense knitted fabric. These mittens were knit from the top down with a thumb gussett decrease. It was very interesting to work them up this way and it went very quickly. My sister loved her birthday present.
