This is a 2-ply yarn, in a full-sized skein of 100 grams (3.5 oz), giving approximately 230 yards (210 meters). It gives around 12 wraps per inch, or a gauge of about 20 stitches, which would typically suit a US 5 to 7 needle (4-5mm) for a conventional project. You might call it DK or light worsted.
I would describe this yarn as medium softness. We don't use "superwash" chemicals, which strip off the natural fuzziness of the wool, so it's quite springy and holds warmth well. Hand-spinning doesn't break the fibers in the way that machine-spun wool does, so your finished garment will be hard-wearing.
The dye is water-fast. I recommend hand-washing with a mild detergent, and spreading your garment on a flat surface to dry.
If you'd prefer the skein wound into a ball ready for knitting, just put a note in your order - there's no extra charge.
I've just started listing items in my shop! I'll be adding more colors over the coming days, as well as my mohair blend. I'd appreciate any feedback!
