Still Spinning

A few hours at the farmer's market gave me the time to get a big skein of Mother Fiber plyed.  Plying is not my favorite part of spinning but I love plied strands of hand spun.  The yarn is much more interesting with the different colors lying on top of each other.  They yarn is also stronger and warmer with extra loft.  I'm going to wind this bobbin onto a niddy-noddy, then wash it to set the twist and rinse out any dye residue or chaff from the hay.  This natural black Bluefaced Leicester with colored kid mohair blended in will make a lovely yarn for a scarf and matching hat or mittens.
