Spinning a Yarn

Here are just a few more skeins of my labors. First, this is a charcoal grey/ash grey two-ply alpaca:

And, of course, here it is up close.

Then there's some bombyx silk that I spun two bobbins of singles for, then plied together. This is the same silk that I spindled last week and posted. I'm in comparison mode. Click here to see the spindled batch.

I have a whole second bobbin full of plied silk. This skein measures about 70 yards, and I'm hopeful the second skein will be comparable. Any ideas what I should do with about 140 yards of spun silk?
