Spin, Spun, Done!

Teals combination spin

I got all of my recently plied yarn skeined and washed to set the twist over the weekend.  This ended up being 2,352 yards of finished three ply and I haven't checked wraps per inch, but just eyeballing it, it looks like sportweight.  I love the way the yarn turned out and it was so much fun to spin.  I will definitely be doing another combination spin again.  

Combo spinning

These are the original six braids I started with.  Each was 100 grams or 4 ounces.  Four of them were 80% Polwarth/20% silk, one was 50% Merino/50% silk, and one was 100% BFL.  I divided each braid into sixths by weight, so there was an equal amount of each spun onto each bobbin of singles.

Here's a close up of the finished yarn.  It's got more green in it in real life, but I had trouble color correcting the photo.  I can't express how much I love this finished yarn.  I don't know yet what I will knit out of it, but I will swatch it first - I don't want to lose the colors in a stitch pattern or vice versa.  It might end up being stockinette, just to let the yarn shine.
