Handspun wool yarn in denim blue, evenly spun but with some thicker slubs, with highlights in dark red / burgundy / plum / maroon. Silky soft to the touch, with a luxurious handle. Best used for knitting or crochet, as the original sliver is labelled "machine washable".
Equates to fingering or sport weight (4 ply to 5 ply) at 14 wraps per inch, except for the irregular slubs, which are much bulkier. The skein is one continuous length - if you are like me, you hate finding a knot in the middle of a ball!
