My partner did a squiggly fluffy thing

By which I mean yarn.  She went to a spinning class tonight, to learn how to make yarn, and came home with a squiggly, fluffy, yarn-like thing. I am very proud of her, it looks very cool.  I don't really know much about it, but apparently there are a lot of things that aren't 'right,' per se, but it was her first night and everyone sucks their first time at things.

It's "Merino" wool, which is a thing that I don't understand, and she took the class at the Yarn and Fiber Company in Derry, NH.  (I went there last week with her, to go to a Friday night knitting group thing.  It was weird, mostly I think because I don't really know how to knit, so I had trouble following conversation.)

EDITED 10:46pm 2013.03.08 because I originally spelled "Merino" wrong, instead writing "Marina".  Sorry.
