is it possible to spin leftover yarns together without blending other rovings or fibers in it?

or would it just be better to use those as accents?

thanks!

You can always ply them together

Scraps are great for making a new yarn. You can even use scraps from old cloth. Like old dresses, blankets, etc... Plastic bags, just about anything can be spun into new yarns.
This site has challenged me to think outside the box when it comes to what can be spun.

Check out some of the old spin Challenges. They may be over, but its really fun to try them and see what you come up with.

Good luck!
