This could be considered an art Yarn. It is thread plied. This was a custom dyed braid of merino that I spun as a single and then plied with a sparkly thread. It's difficult to see from the pics but it's very squiggly. This is a fun Yarn with a ton of yardage. There is a knot in the thread of this skein where I had to rejoin it however, due to the construction of this yarn it will be easy to disguise. :) 2 of the photos were taken with the flash on in an effort to catch the sparkle of the thread. This was spun by me.
