What a Difference Colour Makes

I came into possession of a small amount of dyed wool roving from someone's destash.

It wasn't something I was most excited about spinning, but that suddenly changed when I separated out the electric blue strip from the mixed medium purples. Intense blue for me, muted purple for someone else. Anyone else. Just not me.

The strips came apart very easily. I expect they came off a commercial carder separately and were pindrafted together to make the roving.

What a difference colour makes.

You can see the purple fibre spun up in the photo, along with the Lendrum niddy noddy I just got.
