92 yards, 9.9 oz., Super-bulky

This is a huge skein - almost 10 ounces - that was spun thick/thin from a Falkland top with the addition of Cotswold locks, lengths of beautiful metallic seed beads in green and brown, and handfuls of angelina. It was plied up with occasional coils around a gold 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.
