Spinning Samples

I spun up one of my fibre samples yesterday, in fact I did 2 but the other one is still drying.

This sample was the braid in my previous post. It was lovely to work with. The blend is Merino & Silk and I added a little Firestar for a bit of sparkle. I spun it into a very fine single then Navajo plied it to make a 3 ply yarn. I'm guessing it's about a Sport Weight:

The second one I spun is the Blue Faced Leicester sample and I also added a little Firestar to that one. I liked the BFL sample - the fibre was so easy to draft and spun like a dream. I'm going to get started on the Shetland one today.
