I was pretty happy with the dye results, although it was definitely a tad uneven. The roving came out fairly unscathed and hardly compacted at all. That made me very happy was well. Once it was dry, I started to spin it. Then I remembered why it had been shoved to the back of the shelf. The roving is full of neps, little balls and clumps of fibre that just didn't want to spin and were the devil to pick out. Then I remembered that I didn't even bother with this roving for my homework, because it was awful to work with.
Since I'd dyed just over 50 g of fibre, I wasn't going to waste it. I haphazardly divided it into 2 sort of equal pieces. I carded it up into punis. Lots and lots of punis. I carded 6 or so at a time and then spun it up, switching to a different bobbin for the second half of the fibre.
