Life of a fibre-obsessed mama who knits, spins, and crafts...

Here's half a pound of merino all spun up into three skeins of varying yardages in 2-ply--227 yds, 195 yds, and 103 yds according to my niddy noddy. It was such a dream to spin up this fibre that I'm actually sad to have a break until I dye up my next 8 ounces. The colours turned out great after plying even though I kept having mixed feelings about the colours as I was spinning it up into singles. Here's what the dyed roving looked like.
