First Corespun Yarn!

My first corespun yarn! This hotpink and teal batt with Angelina was given to me a few years ago, and I never knew what to do with it!
I spun it around a commercial 2-ply, and threw in some purple mohair locks and some handfuls of sari silk fiber.

This is about 80yds, all that could fit on the bobbin. I have more of the batt left so I'll probably make some more of it.

That looks wonderfully wild. Any idea what you'll make with it?

Gorgeous! I took a class on making core core spun yarn a few months ago and haven't had the time to bust out the technique yet. Nice work : )
