merino/silk blend fibre from hipknits, colourway "bluebird"; spun on an ashford traditional wheel
2 ply yarn, approximately sock weight (17 wpi)
112 grams, 475 yards
i wanted to try a slightly different technique, using a looser spin & a tighter ply. the resulting yarn is loftier & lighter, with more "bounce" & softness, although it did have a tendency to break while plying as the looser spun singles had less strength.
