I'm so glad I have a bunch of this fiber to spin yet because it was such an easy, soft fiber to turn into yarn! I spun up the first four batts I carded and ended up with 272 yards. There will be more of this later on! Now that's something to look forward to!
Tonight I spun up half of the superwash merino I dyed in the rainbow colorway. I decided to split the roving into fourths so I could have two rainbow skeins. If I had only split it in half, I would have had one skein with one long series of colors. This is why you have to do a bit of thinking about what you are going to use the yarn for when you are getting ready to spin! (If you don't make a determined decision before spinning, you will just have to live with what you spun-not the end of the world!)
