As promised, my wheel sat idle until I got my hands on the Sanguine Gryphon handpainted 65% merino, 35% silk Ravenswood roving for Savasana. Now, this one was a real stretch for me, as I know Sav likes her handspun all barberpoled with the colors mixing together. So, for the first bobbin I tore the roving into 4 long strips and spun from that. For the second bobbin, I had Bug help me mix up all the colors and tear it into thinner strips. Something really amazing that I did not expect happened. The first bobbin, due to the nature of the handpaint, muddied up the color into a very tweedy thing. The second bobbin, since I tore it into thinner strips, had color that stayed very saturated and separate. In the end, I feel like I got more colors out of one roving because of this.
Now, what you are seeing is not washed and finished, as I am going to let Sav do that herself in interest of trying to get the package out today. But you get the idea.
