Got out the overdyed Lincoln roving that I had torn up for a combo spin. Sorted all the colors and then divided them into four groups with an approximately equal amount of all colors in each group. That was 400 grams. I also dyed an additional batch with purple, black and turquoise and will add that to the mix when it’s dry.

Planning a 2-ply rug wool for a punch needle rug. Design will be abstract and include shades of natural gray. The rug isn’t really planned yet. Just an idea.
