Now...the interesting bit....
I spun this mostly on my drop spindle! We went camping a couple of weeks ago, and I threw in my socks to knit, and on a whim, this roving and a spindle. Surprisingly, I wasn't in a sock knitting mood, and so I picked this up. Its probably the first significant amount of yarn I've spun on a spindle in a long, long time.
And...I liked it! Yes, it was definitely slower than my wheel. But, it was relaxing and I enjoyed taking a little more time to play with the fiber. I did however, ply it on my wheel for speed.
