Helloooo, Craftsters! This is a substantial portion of all the yarn I've spun since late January this year. I haven't had a chance to take pictures before this because it's been absolutely miserable outside. It finally warmed up and got sunny, so I took the opportunity to snap some pics!

Blue Moon--plied, 83 yds., overdyed blue superwash

So beautiful!  What do you mean when you say your singles are "fulled"?

Basically, it's a more accurate way of saying they're "felted". I ran them under some really hot water, then under really cold a few times until the fibers were shocked, then I smacked it against a wall a few times. It sort of locks all the fibers together, so even though it's underspun, it's really strong. It feels more spongy than yarny.
