Finished Skein!

This is how I began, with Lura's rambouillet/mohair roving, hand painted with acid dyes.

Then I spun the roving into singles on my Reeves wheel.

And this is the final result. I've posted a larger picture above. And the pictures in this post are just reminders!

This is the first time I've ever plied a skein with so many colors. This is an interesting result that I like, given the colors. The final skein weighs 2.5 ounces; I don't know the yardage but it's around 100 yards or so. The mohair is already starting to frizz a little!
