2.4 merino/silk - a failure in the system

This is the basic clump-o-fiber I've been pulling handfuls from for the charcoal merino/silk worsted-style spinning I was working on. I decided to see how it would look spun long draw.

Doesn't look too bad does it?

Appearances are deceptive. This turns out to be a rather yucky yarn. The fiber prep isn't conducive to long draw without significant rework I'm not willing to give it.

Time for plan B.

It's a very pretty color. I hope you can work it out.
