Can You Say .."Overspun"?

Evolution of a Yarn
It was spin day for the 3rd place book knitters. I had two sacks of these little balls of different colored wool. I thought I'd mix them together and it WAS alot of fun till I took the resulting yarn off on a niddy noddy and saw how over twisted it was. Only way I know to fix that is to ply it so I plied it with some natural mystery wool I've been playing with. Here you see the results.
Left <-> right balls of colored wool, Plied yarn and overspun singles. I think it turned out really .. REALLY cool. Like Tie Dye... Far out man !! Like totally .. fer sure!!
