Weekend Spinning Results

This Romney was a little greasy. It was handcarded during my spinning class. I had a difficult time drafting it evenly because of the stickiness and my cruddy carding technique. I navajo-plied it and ended up with 139 yards. I haven't washed it yet but suspect it will puff up nicely.

This is the Romney skein next to 37 yards of Coopworth (2 ply). We used this combed top to practice long vs. short draw drafting styles so the yarn in very uneven but very soft and squishy. I love Coopworth. So creamy and pretty.
