Spinning BFL for twined knitting

Spinning yarn. It was a long time since I did that ... But I have now spun a yarn for twined knitting from Blue Faced Leicester. I used my Majacraft Little Gem wheel both for spinning (in S) and plying (in Z). I think that Little Gem is excellent for spinning yarn of this kind, but rather weak for plying. Next time I will use my Louet for plying.

Two natural shades, spun separately and then plied together. The contrasts turned out a little more pronounced than I had hoped for ... a total of 190 grams. I enjoy spinning, but there is no doubt that the result will be better if I do it on a more regular basis. More than two years since I spun my previous yarn.
