Wildfire and Calm

When I posted about my new Thumbelina, I mentioned 8oz of yarn that spun up almost without effort.

The first was 4 oz of Corriedale roving in a lovely calm beige. The second was an amazing batt from Orange Jello called "Wildfire"

These were both spun fine on the Thumbelina and n-plyed on my Ashford Traddy.

The Corriedale is about a DK weight yarn, while the Wildfire is a fingering weight. Both need a little bath to set the twist, and then I'll measure yardage.
