Although I spin a lot I don't list much yarn because I knit and weave a lot too. Now and again I end up spinning more yarn than I need for a project, usually because I make one skein then immediately make another that is slightly different from the first. This is a mixture of purple merino, red merino and some orange batts that were mainly bfl with sparkle and bamboo. I carded the whole lot together and made this two ply yarn. It's not superwash and will felt if you want it to. I'm not sure what colour I'd call it, it's on the orange side of brown and when you look at it closely you can see streaks of red and purple. It's slightly too dark to be cooked pumpkin pie filling but it is that shade of orange/brown. (I can't get my hands on canned pumpkin any more so don't make pie so I'm working on memory here) From a distance it reads as "plain", it's only on closer inspection that you can see that it's really a mixture of colours and fibres.

It's a single skein with no knots, weighing 107g and measuring 234 yards (132 turns of a skein measuring 32"). I am not a reliable measurer of wpi, I can measure the same yarn on different days and get different results depending on how I felt about packing. Today I'm thinking that this is about 11 wpi. It looks to be a thick double knitting weight to me, pushing over towards a light aran or what in some places is called worsted weight.

All items come from a smoke free home, I've a small dog but he doesn't play in the wool.
