I finished the “Cotton Candy” wool and am plying it up as a 3-ply. So, I still need something to spin, the great thing about 2 wheels, is that I can spin on my Joy, while plying on the Traveler (with the jumbo bobbin). I have several fibers that I received in my grab bag from Kathryn, a new friend from my spinning weekend retreat. I am saving my Fiber Optics rovings until I feel my spinning is a bit better. Here were my choices.
Purchased from Kathryn that she dyed, known as ccsmile2006 on etsy. 4 oz. Polwarth combed top, color: Teal’s 25th Anniversary:
and from Woolgatherings a 4 oz Polwarth Wool top. No colorway listed:
Knitty and Color Haindpaint, 4 oz. Superwash Merino, color: Bloodlust
Some fiber that was gifted with the purchase of my Joy. I do not know what it is, but the white is definitely Angora:
Another unknown gifted fiber. Very soft!
and my choice to start with was 4oz. Targhee, I think that the color is “Harvest”. It also says on the tag A Man Called Pan. I don’t really know what that means, or who dyed this. I have split the braid in half for 2 bobbins, then each half into 4ths to have shorter color repeats:
