I have shiny yarn:)

I started with shiny fluffy batts from Laal Bear
Colourway Happy hippy.

I fluffed it out even further and predrafted it.

Started to fill up the bobbins. Plied the finished yarn and ended up with this gorgeousness:)

I ended up with 245yards from 100gm which in my book is good.
Doesn't it look pretty?

Amazing spinning! Can you predict what dyed fleece will look like when spun?

Does predrafting make it easier? Drafting reliably without breaking the thread is the bit that still eludes me.
