Rainbow Suri

One ply pretty tightly spun

You can't blame me for using Sally as a prop.

Just a quick post to show the batts drawn out as roving.  I intend to draw out each color into thinner roving, much thinner actually so as to spin something resembling lace weight yarn.  I want to make it 1 ply.  I think the silky texture and the long staple are conducive to that.

Suri Batts Overdyed Blue

I know I should be working on my prize for Al Hoff but I pulled out some batts I carded a while back.
And I decided to overdye some of them.  Below is the result.

I used the greenish and the reddish purple one as well as a couple other random batts.  can you understand why I am drooling over this?
