This item is a set of three matching skeins of two ply handspun synthetic yarn with the following measurements:
Approximately 9 wraps per inch (worsted/medium weight)
Skein 1: 100.5 g (3.55 oz) and 114.9 metres (125.7 yards) Skein 2: 83.7 g (2.95 oz) and 83.9 metres (92.8 yards) Skein 3: 40.4 g (1.43 oz) and 46.9 metres (51.3 yards)
Total: 224.6 g (7.93 oz) and 245.8 metres (268.8 yards)
This yarn is made from synthetic fibre in four colours - russet brown, orange, red and yellow - to give an impression of the changing leaves of autumn. The singles were spun with a Z twist and the resulting two ply yarn is S twist. The yarn was then washed and hung to dry.
Synthetic fibre is very good for people with sensitivities to wool or other natural fibres. Please note that I cannot guarantee that this yarn has no wool in but if you buy this yarn and react to it before you remove the bands I will give a full refund of your purchase price.
This yarn is quite soft and would be suitable for a number of uses. I do not know whether or not this yarn would felt well, but I suspect not.
According to the Knit-Kard from Nancy's Knit Knacks, the following needle sizes are recommended for a yarn of 9-11 WPI:
US Needle size: 7 - 9 Metric Needle size: 4.5 - 5.5 Hook size: G - H Gauge per inch: 4 - 5
