MLF-- First I unraveled a sleeve from a merino sweater (letting it tangle), then I dyed it in a kettle, just like I would if it were locks. Then it was corespun around another yarn and thread-plied. It was extremely difficult to do on a regular Babe wheel. I had to keep working it through the orifice and hooks. There are a few places on the  finished yarn where you can see the core yarn. Sad I love making these goofy yarns, but will probably save the rest of my dyed merino poodle yarn for when I get a bulky wheel, or until I figure out how to do them well on giant hand spindle. I learned how to do this from a tutorial I bought from Neauveau Fiber Arts. Her videos are fun and a lot of them are free here:
