Yarn 6th, 7th, 8th & 9th

Spinning with the spindle has been really slow. I got my Hansen Crafts Minispinner and I've been finishing off some yarns I started on the spinner.

Poppy Flower Fibers Hand-painted Merino top Color Compilation Series

This is the first yarn on the Minispinner! The 6th yarn I've made.

This is my second yarn on the Minispinner but 7th yarn over all.

This is a 2 ply. The last of this brown fiber (Firefly Inspired Mal Corriedale).

This is my first 3 ply yarn.
