Tour De Fleece 2017 Day 9

Lots of progress today. I managed to spin four ounces of Cheviot using supported long draw and most of four ounces of Targhee in my usual short forward draw.

Yipes! Stripes! at the top and two bobbins of North of the Wall below

Into The Whirled Targhee. If you are old enough to remember Fruit Stripe Gum, you will understand the name of this color way, Yipes! Stripes!

The second bobbin of long draw. The color is off. Long draw puts a lot of air between the fibers so the bobbins fill more quickly.

The first bobbin of long draw. The color is truer than the previous picture. This is also an ITW color way, North of the Wall.
