Love it! How did you preserve the color?

I split the roving in half lengthwise, spun each half on a separate bobbin, then plied the two back together, trying as much as possible to keep the colours lined up as I did so. Felicia talks about thisin one of the early lessons on preserving colour; she says she prefers navajo plying because there is less risk of the colours getting out of alignment, but I have done it this way a few times, and am getting better at it.
