"They saw at once that she must be a real princess when she had felt the pea through twenty mattresses and twenty feather beds. Nobody but a real princess could have such a delicate skin."
-The Princess and the Pea
by Hans Christian Andersen

This yarn is soft and luxurious enough for a princess but funky and wild enough for a modern maven! I began by spinning a slightly thick-and-thin single from a fabulous assortment of fibers. These include soft merino and other wools, Angelina, mohair, firestar, bamboo, silk, alpaca, milk fiber, Faux cashmere, and even a little tulle fabric. Then, I plied this delightfully diverse concoction with a strand of metallic silver thread strung with green glass seed beads (peas, if you will). The result? A can't-take-your-hands-off-it yarn that is overflowing with interest and personality.

Approximately 201 yards.
