This very soft yarn is spun by hand on a suspended spindle. I used a 18 micron Natural Merino Wool Length - 49 yard (45 m) Weight - 4,44 oz (126 gram) From this yarn you can knit a wonderful baby bump blanket for a photo of a newborn. This yarn was photographed in natural light to give you the real color of the wool. From such quantity of a yarn it is possible to connect a baby bump blanket 43 * 43 sm using spokes number 12. If you knit with knitting needles number 15 and more, you can get an even bigger. I always wash the yarn in warm water and dry it to get you a clean finished yarn. There is one skein, but I can make you some more skeins. My recommendations on the care of yarn - wash with hands in warm water, do not wring out strongly, dry on a horizontal surface.
