Later the Same Day...

Just to give you an idea of how the Brown Sheep is shaping up with more prep and a little familiarity...

(This one gets big if you click it.)

And again:


I split large sections of brown off of the brown mix, maybe taking a bit of black or white, but not much. I loosened the fibers up and pre-drafted vigorously. And you can see, compared to the calico mix, that this is a far more even and satisfactory yarn. Still some thick and thin, but not as bad and subtler transitions between thicknesses.

Much different! Both are quite pretty though. It amazes me that they came from the same fiber. hehe

One fiber, two ways. Very pretty.

I love all the spinning you've been doing lately!

Very nice!

I'm kind of hooked on the mill ends myself.

What "brown" did you ask for? I didn't realize I had a choice and didn't specify and mine was mostly brown with a bit of white and black mixed in, but not much.

I have a cat the same color as your roving!
