First skein of cotton yarn

Oh HA! Lookit! My first skein of Peruvian Brown cotton. This is 2 cotton bolls worth of string. I spun it on my favorite old handspindle. I’m sure it would be considered awfully heavy for this project. This works out to about 4 yards of 2-ply, 15 wpi. Not having spun cotton before, I was in for a treat. The fiber is very short, and seems to want to unspin at the drop of a hat. It’s seriously delightful stuff!
