Day 19 Tour de Fleece

Since my Wild Flyer has not shipped yet, from Majacraft, I attempted some "art" yarn on my drop spindle. I spun two singles, one of the combed short pieces on mystery curly yarn, and a thinner single from some natural mill end Lambs pride base. I then try to ply the the longer curls in. Some are fairly tight but some look like they will slip out, so I'll try and fell this bit to see if they will stick.

In the background is the Polwarth in progress. The plan is to spin 4-6 oz into a two ply fingering/sport weight and save a bit for some thick and thin adventures.

Nice! The polwarth is beautiful! I'm currently spinning a sig-vat indigo dyed Herdwick fiber. Scratchy, smelly and really pretty color.
