74 yards, 7.1 oz., Super-bulky

This is a huge skein (7.1 ounces) that was spun thick/thin from a Falkland top in my Bewitching colorway with the addition of Cotswold and Border Leicester locks, snippets of commerical yarn, and handfuls of angelina. It was plied up with occasional coils around a copper thread. This yarn is a statement in itself and would make any piece you create truly one of a kind. Very textural and luxurious! It would be a quick knit on big needles. I consulted the spinners in my spinning group about pricing these huge skeins and $125 was the consensus. It was agreed that these are designer skeins. I'm pricing them lower for now as I launch this new look.
