[spinning] Rainforest

4 oz of merino in 'Rainforest':


I spun this onto two bobbins. I thought about spinning a 3rd bobbin with a solid color, and then ply the three together. I bought some sage-y green merino and spin that up. Here are the three bobbins:

And the finished 3-ply:

The finished yarn is a heavy worsted-weight. What do you think? I think it's kind of... dull.

I wonder how it would have turned out if I had plied it with a sky blue, which I seriously considered.
