I liked spinning this so much better than the Romney I spun for last week. This yarn was spun from hand dyed merino combed top from FatCatKnits. this is the second roving I've used from this shop. The colors are great and the fiber has been easy to prepare for spinning.
This time I did spend more time with the fiber before setting down to spin. You saw the results of that on Monday's post. It really did make the spinning go fast and easy. I think it really helped me to get the final yarn a little more even that I have been getting in the past. So for the time being I will keep preparing the fiber this way.
The color of this fiber was named Sweet Corrosion. I didn't really pay too much attention to the color as I prepared the fiber for spinning. I like the barber pole effect and it helps me to judge plying the yarn when the color of each strand is different. It will be fun to try for a self-striping yarn sometime though.
