Item details

This is a skein of art yarn which I spun on my Ashford E Spinner.

I combined 4 of my own carded batts to make this yarn - see last pic. I used merino and corriedale wools, tussah and mulberry silks, sari silk threads, bamboo, firestar and angelina.
I core spun it first of all, then spiral plied it with cotton. A very time consuming process, but the result is definitelty worth it!

WPI : 5/6= Bulky weight ( I'd suggest needle size 5.5mm-8mm)
Length : approx. 50yds/ 45.7m
Weight : approx. 113g/ 3.98oz

I can imagine this yarn either knitted/crocheted up into a cowl, or used as a contrast with a plainer yarn. Lots of possibilites!

I also spun a thick and thin single ply yarn from the same batts which is listed here - some pics show both yarns together
