I dyed this yesterday:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=199059.0

And spun it this evening:



I spun this up with my smaller fly wheel, which helped me spin it finer, but I still wanted it slubby (yeah, that's my story!) then I plied it with a dark irredescent thread.  There are also beads spun in.

I am stoked with how this came out!

Fantastic colors and the dark shiny thread makes it so interesting to look at.  It just makes the lighter colors in the yarn pop!
Are you planning to knit with this?  Because I'd love to see how it knits up.

Lovely ! What sort of thread did you use to ply it ? Is that some machine embroidery thread or something bigger ?
