1) This part was taken apart into sections and then spun longdraw(ish). I could have gotten sharper colour sections if Id (navajo) plied it with shorter loops, but I wasnt really paying attention there. Theres more barberpole/mixing further along 2) Split down lengthwise, then drafted with a backdraw method, holding two sections so they didnt match colour. I was going for maximum marling here. I like the effect more than I thought I would. 3) Heavily pre-drafted but spun without splitting it up. Navajo plied with short loops.
