Carding and Spinning

I picked some fiber up from a destash group a little while ago.  I did try to spin it on its own without modifying it at all, but found the fiber to be sticky and akward to work with.

I decided to card the fiber and see what it would look like as rolags, the puffy pieces were so cute I had to spin them up right away.  I managed to get over 200 yards from these rolags once they had been plied with some white merino.  I did also card them with some merino, the results were pretty nice.  I like the colors a lot, but I prefer them plied with white rather than with themselves.

This was a lot of fun, it always amazes me how much I really do enjoy spinning.  Hopefully once I get the hang of it weaving will bring me similar joy!

Happy Crafting!
