Okay, so I can never think of color combos to spin together or anything so I thought I would geek out and do some Marvel yarns:
Captain America:




Iron Man:


And here was my first try at coils. It's called Purple Nurple:

The white is undyed merino. I had some left over red and blue cotton weaving threads from Halcyon Yarn weaving kits. I strung the star sequins on the red yarn then I plied the red and blue together (just so I didn't have to wrangle three different yarns at once.) I then plied this with the merino making a few coils here and there. It turned out way better than I expected it. I was thinking of selling it at first but now I really like it so I don't know!
