[spinning] Venus Fly Trap

4oz of Merino in the Venus Fly Trap colorway by WoolPig:

This was a very pretty colorway- plum purple, mossy green, lemongrass colors. The only thing I didn't like is that the fiber wasn't fully dyed. When I pulled it open and started stripping it into thinner lengths, there was lots of white in the middle that didn't get any dye. Not a big deal, but it did lighten the overall tone of the finished yarn.

I spun it all onto one bobbin and navajo-plied the single:

I like it. I'm not a super-fan of chain plying but I like the end result of keeping the colors together.
