Evolution of a yarn

I had some bits and pieces of roving that I kettle dyed over the weekend, when dry it looked like this:



And I wasn’t really thrilled with it.

So I ran it through my drum carder and pulled the batts into roving and it got this lovely result:







Then I spun enough for one skein and the early returns on the yarn are this:



I am happy!

Then I ran one of my Bedlam batts through the carder and pulled it into roving, I can’t wait to spin this!



Tada and stuff. Good night.

Those are both just gorgeous, Joy. Have you been to the fair yet? A co-worker of mine was doing a spinning demonstration Sunday...
