In my classes, I get a lot of questions about combination drafting and combination spin. They both combine braids to make a cohesive and plentiful yarn for a bigger project like a sweater. Combination drafting is holding two or more strips of fiber together and drafting them like they are one fiber. A combo spin , which I heard about on the PassionKnit podcast, is combining various braids that are similar in color in the ply to create serious yardage that all goes together. Spinners use both methods to help spin down their stash, to combine lots of single braids for a bigger project, and to mix colors in relatively stress-free way. Broadly, in a combo draft, two thin strips of different braids are drafted together into a single, and then plied with another combo-drafted single, combining colors in both single and ply.

The Why of Ply
Marled knitting has been getting a lot of press in the past few years. Stephen West has been creating wildly marled knitting, dyers have been making marled yarns, and Cecelia Campochiaro has written a very detailed book on creating and knitting with marled yarns. Spinners have been making marled yarn since the very first days of spinning.
