I think I'm going to knit mittens with the yarn. I obviously didn't spin all 3 singles equally, because I had none left of the BFL, a small amount of the NZ Natural, and slightly more (just under .25 ounce) of the Jacob. I decided to ply them together because they were all spun woolen, even though they are from different breeds, and I didn't think I'd have enough of them individually to make a worthwhile amount of a 2- or 3-ply yarn.

I chain-plyed the left-over singles of the NZ Natural and the Jacob. I might be able to use them as decorative elements in the mittens I'm planning.

The three yarns together look perfect together! Are you going to show what you made you made with this?

Thanks for your comment. It took a while, but I made the yarn into the Double-Rolled Mittens from Robin Hansen's book "Favorite Mittens" (see my page on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/double-rolled-mittens). I haven't yet added the fringed yarn to the cuffs. I have quite a bit more yarn left over than I thought I would.
