RedFish Yarn

This is 4 ounces of 50/50 silk/merino from RedFish DyeWorks. I got this at Stitches West last fall, and I've been spinning it with my spindles ever since. I used what I call a cheating Navajo-ply method. I take about 6-8 inches of fiber and split it. Spin one half, then spin the other half so that the colors match back on each other when plied. I went through the entire 4 ounces like that and ended up with a lace weight 2-ply that looks like a Navajo 3-ply. I've never seen this else where, so I don't know if it has a proper name. I'll just call it Frances-ply.

Here is my expedient niddy-noddy. Oh, to live in a hotel.
