[spinning] Rainbow Romney

At the 2012 Wild and Wooly Weekend down in Proctorsville, I picked up a bag of Romney:

French Hill Farm

I was like, "All right! It's all pre-drafted for me! This will be so easy to spin!"

Well, when I went to spin it, some of the balls were different sizes/thicknesses. And the balls were a little... annoying to unwind. It was just different from how I prep fiber. Lesson learned. 

On the wheel:

Spinning a rainbow

The finished yarn is a 2-ply, roughly DK-weight.

I wouldn't call Romney wool next-to-the-skin soft. I might crochet a little doily or something with this.
