Mini Navaho-Ply Skeins

These are the first mini-skeins from my "advanced beginner" spinning class where we are playing around with different types of wool, different preparations, and different types of spinning. They are also my first attempts at Navaho-plying, and I am very happy to be learning that on sample fiber!

 

From L to R: BFL from roving, Targee from hardcarded rolags, Cheviot from drumcarded batts, Border Leicester from hand-carded rolags (with a slight gradient), Shetland from teased locks, Romney from drumcarded batts, Targee from drumcarded batts, and Romney and Cheviot (about 80/20) blended via hand-carded rolags.

 

The ruler is in inches, to give some sense of size.
