Carding Värmland wool

So. I've been carding today.

This Värmland wool is two years old. It's just been sitting there.

I got 300 gr. and there's at least 400 more in the wash.

And well, this is my Hero.

Oh, the twist

So this is how my Eco Merino and Swedish mixed wool yarn turned out. It is balanced but it is too loosely plyed, so I guess I need to give the singles some more twist.

The white merino sat waiting too long on the bobbin, though. Maybe that's the problem.

But this is my main issue with yarn making. The ply is too loose. The yarn is OK to knit, but it's not tight and nice. I'll have to deal with this.

The colourway of this yarn is very nice though, and it's 280 gr, so it's enough for a baby sweater.
