First Spin of 2016

I created some batts out of some BFL I dyed as well as add ins. The yarn is now done. So, from start to finish:

The dyed BFL top. Then onto the drum carder it went.

Along with a bunch of silk and some other wool.

The batts turned out to be quite fluffy and pretty. I divided them all up into small strips, mixed them all up, and spun them onto two bobbins. Then ended up with 410 yards of a 2 ply yarn.

It’s earthy, like stone or metals. It also has a decent amount of sparkle. It’s a sport weight yarn. Great little spin to start the new year!
