Fibrey Goodness :)

This is the spindle single/wheel single I posted earlier...hand dyed in a colourway i have named "Mexicana".....aaaaarrrrriba!

This is made from some yummy merino roving I bought to do felting with. I was saving it to spindle, as I can get a really thin single on my spindle. But, I just HAD to use my wheel.... a kid with a new toy I am....
Theres a block purple single, and a variegated pinks and purple single. Amazingly, the yardage on both came out almost identical!!! That must say something about my spinning..... *grins*
Still having plying issues though......but that will resolve itself with practice. Just need more FIBRE!!!
