I think I get what you mean.
Sometimes when I go from spinning a bouncy smooshy fiber for a long time
over to something else that is smoother, I get sort of disconcerted.
Not so much because the yarn 'isn't good', but just because I am used to the way the first one had been turning out.
Like going from Cormo to Wensleydale. That is a big difference in finished yarns.
I still remember when I first got my wheel.
I had been been spinning Targhee on the spindle (a whole fleece of it),
then I worked Shetland on the wheel and got completely different results.
I wondered where was my smooshy and elastic yarn? LOL
Since then I have learned a lot more about controling when the twist enters the fiber
and can better figure out why the yarns are different.
The miracle of attenuation in the singles, etc.
I know that you know all this (you helped me figure it out!) but I am just rambling.
Your pink yarn still looks like cotton candy to me. It is going to tell you what it wants to become and it will be sweet.
