Cloaked

I just squeaked the January fiber entry in on time;  Gotland fiber. It was a first time spin for me on this particular wool.  I  combed and then spun it woolen method.  While it looks wiry, it is very soft for such an old breed (New Zealand) and since it was the fiber used to make the cloaks in the Lord of the Rings, it had an additional interest to me!  It is a very soft medium wool.
