|First skein of plied Cotswald|
|First skein of Merino|
When I had roughly equivalent amounts on 2 bobbins, I began plying. I found that some of the plied sections looked very good, and others did not. Being still new at Merino spinning, which is kind of an "advanced" wool, some sections were thinner than others. Some sections did not have enough twist to really ply together well. I also think that this is one yarn that really would be better as a 4 ply, since it is so thin, and in 4 plies the inconsistencies might even themselves out a bit more. But it might not be so bad. It has been resting on the bobbin for a couple of days, and I will probably wind it off with the niddy-noddy today and see how it looks relaxed, plus how many yards I have so far.
