Spinning - Earthen Hues pt. 1

As soon as I finished spinning the Summer Berries roving, I had to start this. This is Greenwood Fiberworks in the Earthen Hues colorway. It is a 4 oz braid of 50% merino, 25% bamboo, 25% silk.

I wasn't sure how easy or difficult it would be to spin with only 50% of it wool. But it is very easy. I have the first 1 oz spun up. The goal is to make a 2 ply yarn with the colors mostly together. I'm fairly certain there will be some barber-poling. It's been fun to work on.
