I made this hand spun yarn on my Kromski Sonata spinning wheel from 5 ounces of a Polwarth / Rambouillet / Bombyx Silk / Angelina blend of fibers. This is a 2-ply, lace weight yarn. The fiber blend is soft and the Angelina has an iridescent purple sparkle.
The dyer named this color River Rocks and it does look like that. Shades of grey, tan, beige , slight blue-grey, cream, and pale pink. The last picture I think the picture that is the best representation of how dark/light the skein is. I think the colors are best captured in the 3rd picture. It has a lot of barber poling of colors but the it isn't a drastic difference in shades. Because of that I think this would be a great yarn for a lace shawl. The yarn is springy, but not too springy and the colors would not distract from the lace pattern.
This skein is approximately 720.5 yards in length.
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.
This skein will felt, so it should be hand washed in cool water and agitated very little to keep it from felting and shrinking.
Beautiful subtle colors with just a hint of shine, it deserves to be made into a lacy shawl to be worn for all to see.
