Tropical Yarn for Winter

These two skeins are both two-ply yarns in a super bulky weight.  I plan to make them into joyous scarves for my shop for next winter. They will be combined with some lace weight yarns in an all-over textural pattern.

My spinning has gotten more even finally--although a lot depends on the fiber content. The multicolored skein was spun from Blue Face Leicester, a long staple fiber that is super easy to draft and spin. The pineapple yellow yarn is baby llama and it was more challenging. The baby llama is ultra soft and kept pulling apart on me as I was drafting it.
