This was my first attempt at plying. I do not know what the fiber is (really soft 2″ staple) though I suspect it is some kind of wool or cotton (I know how do I make these huge leaps). I know it isn’t bamboo because I have some of that and need to look into getting blending board because it is too slick for me on its own. I think that the plying went well, without a lazy kate, and look forward to making this into something. Anything. Probably vaguely bracelet like so I can wear it!
