Berry-dyed roving into yarn

This is the berry-dyed roving turned into yarn. Its a nice, muted color, perfect for matching with earthtones. One of the nice things about crockpot dyeing is that it doesn't disturb the composition of the fiber-- I've had a handful of experiences where I felted my roving because it boiled too long or I agitated it in the dyepot too much. It will be great to knit with and I'll post the pictures of the final product up here when I'm done.
