I’ve been spinning, but not a lot. I finished a 2-ply, color blending experiment with some Yarn Hollow roving.
After I spun the second bobbin I was sure the resulting yarn would look really crappy, too contrasty, just like I don’t like. I almost pulled the yarn off of the bobbins and gave up on it.
I will admit I had problems spinning these rovings they were more compacted than usual and really didn’t want to draft together. I’m sure my spinning clouded my judgement because look at the resulting yarn
It looks blended, not too contrasty at all.Â I’m glad I didn’t give up.
I plied some Bricolage Studios handpulled roving with sparkly thread. I love the sparkly it cuts through the meatiness of the single. I got the super sparkly thread from Threadart.
I can’t get a good photo of it from a distance, but here’s a close up
