Spinning Craze - Part 2

Ah, the Yak is 50% Yak/50% Merino. It is a wonderful gray-brown color that shifts slightly. It is very soft to spin.

As you can see this cop/ball is already off the spindle. I will save them up until I am all done spinning the singles and then decide how I want to ply them. I'm not sure at all where I want to go with this. Two-ply is going to be too thin, it'll maybe be a lace-weight, which is just to thin for my preference. I am considering a 4-ply cabled yarn (2-ply and then ply them together) as I really did like the look and feel of the Navajo Cable Plied yarn I did.  That should turn out to be a fingering weight.
