Taste Testing:
Buffalo-
Buffalo/Bison .85 oz 70 yds
long draw- short fibers, spun from the cloud. Very dense fiber, super soft- Easy to spin once it gets going
CVM-
CVM- .25 oz- 32 yds
Short fiber supported long draw. Love/hate I gained love as it spun. Can be breaky in spinning.
Cheviot-

Long forward draw- long staple. Worsted preferred by the fiber. Course fiber. A bit sticky
Cormo-

Short forward draw. Short staple. Modified worsted spun. Spun finer than I thought it would. Still had ram smell. Still had lanolin
