Handspun Birthday Present

This yarn was handspun on one of my Threads Thru Time Turkish Spindles and also plied on it. I held the ends of each single "ball" and then Chain Plied it, so the yarn is a six ply yarn. The colors of the fiber were purple, blue, and green and was the Mountain Air colorway from Greenwood Fiberworks on Etsy.

Didn't it turn out beautifully?  Oh I loved it and it was hard to part with, but it was sent to my little sister, Echo, for her birthday!

It ended up being a heavy fingering weight/light sport. The more handspun that I finish, the more I want to make!
