The yarn started out with new spinners trying out my wheel during my spinning demo at the Farmer's Market.  Plenty of thick/thin/slubs.  I finished it out, trying to make slubby yarn.

The yarn is hand dyed Merino.  It was over 200 yards when it was just yarn, but I coiled it around a cotton core and it is a mere 20-2/3 yards.

Great job on the coils! I just did one recently and I only got 18 yards weighing 3.6 ounces. What an eye opener!   Cheesy
