I love spinning art batts, because they really force me to take a close look at what I consider "good" spinning. This batt is from Hello Purl and it includes 10 different kinds of fiber in 4.5 oz.
It is probably possible to spin fine, even yarn from art batts, but where's the fun in that? I like my yarn to reflect the nature of the batt. In this case: a little wild!
I oiled my wheel and chose the 10.5:1 ratio to spin my singles.
Using the long-draw technique, I had just enough time to get a little fiber on the bobbin before I had to go get ready for work.
I love long-draw for batts because if I accidentally stretch a segment until it is too thin, I can just break it off, rejoin, and keep spinning. I don't try to control how lumpy/bumpy the yarn is, but I do like keeping it from having giant clumps followed by super-thin spots.
I'm planning on making this into a two-ply. I'll let you know how it goes.
