Blending with Natural

I am hearing the siren song of natural colored fiber. Not by itself, but as a mixer, a little tonic to my colorful vodka braids.

I am smitten by both of these. The dyed fiber is Maya by Cjkoho designs and the gray/taupe is a natural BFL.

I want to combine the two in a variety of ways over the holidays. First up will be the usual one single of each plied together, but I want to work through as many variations and combinations that I can think of, including working beyond 2-plies, drafting the two together and maybe even making a type of ombré.

If you combine naturals and color in your spinning, what do you like to do?
