My Manos Del Uruguay Roving

I finished spinning my Manos Del Uruguay roving and decided to leave it as singles which is normally something I don’t do. Lately, I’ve been on a chain plying kick. So, here it is making its debut- my Manos extrafine merino interspersed with some of my own dyed bright green roving in approx. 580 yds….
