Full Spectrum Handspun

Over the last few months I've been spinning up some rainbow fibre - which I actually started years ago! This past R&R I managed to pull it all together and finish off two skeins - one plied with some fluffy white merino and one navajo plied on to itself.

When I spun the rainbow I broke up the fibre in to colour sections and spun them in long colour blocks. So each skein runs through the rainbow gradually with no repeats. I'm very interested to see how they knit up and what they become!
