I bought this absolutely gorgeous 80/20 merino/angora fiber batt at the NH Sheep and Wool Festival last month, and couldn't wait to spin it up. In the batt, the primary color was teal, but as I spun it, the purples and whites became more prominent, which is always a fun part of spinning. I plied it with some metallic thread ended up with about 430 yards of yarn, which I have titled "Mermaid's Kiss"

not to disparage the yarn, but the names are the best part! :)

Is that the one you washed when I was there?

Yes, that's the same one. That was a lot of yarn. :)
