A Few Observations on Color

All three of these skeins started with the same dyed roving.  Simply spinning up the original roving gave me the middle skein.  For the skein on the left, I randomly added strips of a more persimmon-colored roving as I was spinning.  The skein on the right is made with a ply of camel-colored alpaca and a ply of the wool from the combination for the skein on the left.  Lots of variety out of a pound of dyed wool.
And while we are comparing colors, I had to add this picture taken in the corner of the pasture.  These hens had sorted themselves by breed.  If they weren't all hens, I'd think they had gotten tired of the rain and were pairing themselves off for a ride on the ark.
