[spinning] Forbidden Fruit

Some "fawn brown roving" that I got at the 2009 Fiber Revival down in MA last summer:

Fawn Brown Roving


Not sure what the fiber is but it feels like shetland or icelandic to me. Not soft like merino, but soft in a slightly rustic and wooly kind of way.

These two are not the same colorway, but they're close enough that I spun each and plied them together into a two ply:

Forbidden Fruit


I'm pleasantly surprised with the result. The yarn is maybe a dk or light worsted weight. I think I have enough yardage here for a nice shawl.
