***Didja ever have a funny feeling about something, a nagging feeling that wouldn't go away? Well, I did, about this skein. Finally, today, 1/29/13, I decided to rephotograph this because the pictures just weren't looking great, and it's a super skein. But before I did, I decided to reskein it. I had listed it as 550 yards, but it turns out that there are actually more than 675 yards, something I overlooked when I originally posted this. And *that* was what was nagging at me! So there you have it: 20% more yarn than originally posted!***


This yarn was spun from Sunset Fibers (here on Etsy!) handdyed, pindrafted Corriedale top. A treat to spin and ply, this yarn will be equally delightful to knit with. I drafted in long sections and spun each braid in the same order. This yarn won't pool or flash, but there will be some (very nice!) striping.

Disclosure: There are 2 small knots 60 yards apart near one end of the skein. Because of the fineness of the single plies, I simply knotted the two ends together and continued on plying, leaving enough on the knot ends that you can either untie and weave, or if you're in a spot where you can do it, simply weave the ends in. It's a small thing, but it matters...

Lots and lots and lots of soft, drapey yarn with which to knit a shawl, or knee socks, or a hat plus mitts and maybe even a scarf!

The lowdown:

100% Corriedale wool, dyed by Sunset Fibers
7.7 ounces/675 yards
2ply, handspun laceweight to light fingering weight

Please hand wash this gently and lay flat to dry, unless felting is your objective.

This yarn comes from a smoke-free, pet friendly house (the pets aren't even remotely interested in my yarns. At all.) Just so you know...the yarn was thoroughly washed in a sweet wool wash bath.
