This (1) is the second lot of MoBair fibre from the Knitting and Stitching Show. This time instead of carding it, like I did the purple, I went through it decompressing and predrafting before spinning (2) – carding was rather a waste with the purple even though I like the resultant colour, but this would just card to muddy beige. Uncarded, it spun up into pretty shades of brown and green and pink (3 and 4), and as two-ply it does indeed average out to beige (5), but it’s lovely, and I almost wish it was a ‘me’ colour so I could make it into something I’d like to keep.
