2 ounces of Baby Merino Pencil Roving spun in singles.

I bought the roving last October at SAFF, and I finally got around to spinning it about a month ago.  I think I did pretty good.  The singles are similar in diameter, and while they are slightly over spun it should help the singles hold together if I decide to ply them.

I found the baby Merino soft and smooth, pulling apart easily unless tightly spun.  The put up in pencil roving made it ridiculously easy to draft.  The roving seemed to want to be lace weight, but I am still not a fast enough drafter to spin a thinner diameter.

I am currently spinning regular Merino in normal roving put up.  I am planning to ply this fiber and I hope to show pictures of my progress soon.
