I posted about 'Challenge Day' for the 'Tour De Fleece' where I spun 200g of 'Crazy Batts' into singles. The Crazy Art Batts were bought at a discount price for a group 'Spin along' in the Yummy Yarns UK group on Ravelry. I practiced slubs but didn't quite master control of them. I could make them but not every time I intended to and I had no control over their size. I am partial to a big fat slub in a Yarn though. The resulting yarn was very thick and slubby in places and very unpredictable. I loved it for all its lumps and bumps. It was great fun to spin.

I washed the skeins to set the twist and took them with me camping along with my trusty 'Jumbo Crochet Hook'.
