This is a 3-ply yarn spun from white BFL (blue faced leicester) top. After spun in its natural color, it was then dyed purple, grey and brown in sections before speckled with complimentary colors in the white space.
Most of the time I dye fibers and roving before spinning, but once in awhile I like to spin the yarn first before having fun playing with color.
