So last night I took the “spin thin” class w/ Amy,
It was fun and I learned some things (like using the small whorl, lacing the yarn over the flyer hooks, and that Amy has a peave about roving vs top!), tried some things (aztec plying, long draw), and got totally confused about some other things (mostly around the intricacies of woolen and worsted).
But that long draw with the batt? Probably a loosely plied chunky (except those parts that I was doing some variation of short and/or sliding long draw-who knew!)… but the long draw was pretty entertaining!
This little sample totally has lots of problems, but some good areas, and I love the color and feel of the fiber… definitely something for my growing balls. Here they are last year, though the big one is a little bigger,

The garden shop told me to remove the anthers to make the flowers last longer, which I did, but I really like the burnt orange color against the pink. Maybe I’ll leave the rest of them on.
