I spun up the fiber I got for my birthday from Jacey. unfortunately i lost the card so I don't recall who the dyer was. it's superwash merino, chunky 3ply, 97yards from approximately 4oz (i forgot to weigh it).
i spun the yarn short-forward draw and soaked with a light thwacking to finish. i made a concerted effort not to overply and the yarn has just the right amount of bounce. it felt weird not to spin longdraw, but every once in awhile it's good to get out of my comfort zone.
i wish i had more time to sit at the wheel. maybe in the winter.
