Handspun Friday - Copenhagen
When I saw this wonderful colorway on Ravelry, I asked CJ Kopec Creations if she had any of it left. I did not know it was a repeatable colorway, but hurray, it is! I also didn't understand right away, that these are batts, but really wonderful prepared. I still had some difficulties spinning it, but I could deal with it. At first I thought I'd like to spin back and forth across all the colors of the batt, but that proofed too difficult for me. So I decided to divide the colors in teal/gray for one single, and black, burned orange and yellow for the second single. There was a lot more fiber for the second single, so I found some teal colored fiber in my stash for the second skein. I still had some leftover singles from the black, which I navajo plied. All 8oz of this wonderful fiber is spun up!

yarn: 2-ply, 2 skeins; 1. skein = 523yds, 2. skein = 308yds, both are around 15-17 WPI; had some leftover singles which I navajo plied.
