Its 5 x 25g balls of 2ply pure new wool in a light grey shade, enough for a shawl.
That night I improved my spindling and learnt to andean ply,
This is my first plyed skein of yarn , its somewhere between DK and Aran in thickness.
On sunday we went to Winghams and boosted by my spinning I got some fibre, so now I have a fibre stash as well as a yarn stash.
The grey and black is merino, the aim is to spin it and knit a scarf and gloves in grey with a black edging.
The blue is a wee sample of merino silk blend, I got it so I can see how different it looks when spun and plied, it will probably look a lot different.
The stash is all safely stowed away at home now, I reckon theres enough here to keep me going until woolfest at least.
Skipnorth was great, it was lovely to meet loads of knitters and pick up hints and tips, a big thanks to Lixie and Nic for organising it all.
