FeltstudioUK BFL hand-dyed roving spun

The weather turned - rain and dark recently - but the spinning goes on.
The Blue Faced Leicester hand-dyed roving has become 193 grams of chain-plied Sport weight yarn.
I spun the singles on the new drop spindle and chain-plied it on my e-spinner.
It was nice work.
The color repeats are roughly aligned so that the blues, violet, green and earth are not too smudged out although there are areas of barber pole.
It is soft and moderately "drapey".

A Little bit of the singles left over:
