My next-up wool was the 2-ounce packet of Corriedale. Corriedales were bred from a mix of Merino ewes and either Lincoln or Leicester rams. Their wool is still considered a "fine" wool, and can have quite a bit of lanolin in it.
The locks seemed much easier to separate than the CVM. I had a lot less of the tangled fluff that I had the first time. I did find a bunch of slightly-shorter locks and I kept those out with what little unidentifiable locks I had to card when I was done.
I think next time I'll fold my tulle in half and work with it that way, rather than in a really long piece. Or I'll put those tulle sausages back into my cookie-rack sandwich for support.
