It’s all about making yarn

Taking a break from the cotton. I found this wool in my stash. I think this is wool that I dyed myself, but I’m not sure when I got it or what type of wool it is. It feels like BFL or Polwarth, a bit on the strong side, and not as soft as merino.

Looking at the colours, I decided that chain plying would be the best way to construct the yarn. Not wanting anything too bulky, I spun the single at about 32 wpi (wraps per inch), which resulted in about 12 wpi in the final yarn (approximately sport weight). For those on Ravelry, more details here.

Now I just have to decide what to make with it!
