More Spinning

I finally took some pictures of the Beaverslide Merino roving I've been spinning. It's great. Leanne is a joy to buy from. Even her postage is special.

The preparation of the fiber is rough, with plant matter and neps and noils throughout. The 10% kid mohair often appears in clumps and gives the yarn a heathered look. I love this yarn so much. The natural lanolin makes the finished product so soft and lovely. Yum!

The roving colors aren't shown on the website. The purplish yarn is the Mountain Midnight. The dark brown is Natural Black.
I spun all of this roving as bulky weight. I need to think of something special to knit with it.
