I handspun this yarn on my Kromski Sonata spinning wheel. I made this yarn from 4 oz of Indie dyed fiber - 70% Superwash Merino / 20% Cashmere / 10% Silk in a Burgundy color. The color in the photos is pretty accurate, this is a dark purplish-red burgundy color.
The fiber is incredibly soft and the little bit of silk content adds a subtle shine to the finished yarn. I made this a 2-ply yarn because I think this blend is perfect for lace weight yarn and projects. Twist isn't too tight, but not too loose.
This skein has approximately 687.5 yards in it. After plying my handspun, I wind it off onto a Knitty Knoddy, give it a bath and let it dry. After the handspun has dried I then measure the yarn and subtract 2 wraps to ensure there is a little wiggle room. I always measure yarn after it's bath to try to get the most accurate measurement possible taking into account how the handspun plumps up as it dries.
I think this skein would make a fabulous lace weight shawl!
This yarn should be hand washed in cool water after being knit, crocheted or woven.
