Remember that other batt I carded in the class I took? With purple, blue and a little sparkle? Since the colors and fibers were pretty uniform in this batt I tore the batt into strips to spin. I then pulled it apart to pre-draft, grabbing all the colors. I spun it, and the solid, medium purple merino from LunaBudKnits, as individual singles.
I spun enough of the purple for the plying and then plied them together. After plying I ended up with 200 yards of sport/dk weight-ish yarn in 2.6 ounces. Not much. So I went ahead and spun the rest of the purple and plied it on itself. Ended up with 100 yards in 0.9 ounces.
I actually like the colors and the minimalist sparkle but am a bit disappointed with the yardage. Even putting them together its only 300 yards which is enough for a small cowl but not a shawl as I originally planned. So I may spin up something else to go with it. Black maybe?
