I Navaho plied a bit of my first homespun yarn. It's pretty but has the all of the tactile appeal of twine. Hmmm, probably too much twist both in the singles spinning and in the plying. It would be fine for weaving but not soft enough for knitting. I'll have to try plying some more of it in the regular way and see if it is softer. I Navaho plied it to keep the color sequence but I can see some of the colors intertwined in the places where I joined new colors and I kind of like the effect. It will be interesting to see how the next bit plies.
