Handpainted wool top

I ordered some wool top from Lorna's laces. They have very nice colors. This one is called watercolors.

I was not sure how to spin this wool, but I ended up pulling off one length that had 1 repetition of all colors and split them into smaller sections. Then I ended up with rather short sections of each colors. It spun up very nicely. It is a 1 ply yarn with some variation when it comes to thickness. I would guess it will be 4-5 mm needles that will be right for this yarn, but I am not sure.

With my umbrella swift and skein winder I ended up with this 43 grams skein. I am happy with my spinning-progress.
