Sampling

 I sampled 2 oz of Lincoln top. From the left is yarn spun backward draw: skinny singles, a bit heavier singles, 2 ply of skinny singles, 2 ply of heavier singles medium ply twist, 2ply of heavier singles low ply twist, 3-ply, core spinning with grey coopworth locks dyed in the "Brave" colorway by Gale's Art, then spun forward draw: singles, a heavy ropey 2-ply, a tolerable twisty 2-ply.  These haven't been finished yet, but I want to record this somewhere.

 My favorites are the second and fourth white skeins from the right. Both are 2-ply with quite low ply twist. They have nice drape, the fourth from the right came off the niddy noddy balanced.
 Medium ply  twist (left), low ply twist (right
Love this so much!
