Fugly yarn

Well, usually I LOVE spinning BFL fiber, but this time, I hated it. I'm thinking it wasn't well prepped. Usually BFL spins like butter - smooth..... but this time, there were lots of short clumps and such. I was very disappointed. To make matters worse, the color sucked. It was part of a fiber club so sometimes it's just not a good match. I'm sure someone would love the color, but not me. I gave up spinning thin and spun the 2nd half thick/thin. The yarn is now sitting calmly in the soak pot and will soon be simmered in purple wilton food color. Hopefully it will look much better even if I hated spinning it. It's always interesting to see what overdying looks like. Here is a photo of the original yarn:
