BrownHeather yarn

More spinning!
This time I experimented with plying DMC craft thread with a thick and thin spun cardinal wool in chocolate, reds and blues. I had some difficulty with the wool, which was strange since the red-multi spun up so nicely. This one wouldn't draft evenly, so I had many times when I had to re-attach the fiber after it pulled out too much. Also, I didn't have enough of the craft thread in the right color to finish the skein, so I had to use purple for the last bit.

Here's the orginal single, pre-plying so you can see the colors:

I wanted to emphasize the turquoise, so that's what I used. The thread is varigated:

and here with the purple:
