This yarn is the product of my love of playing with the art of plying. First, I spun a combination of Lincoln-Romney cross wool, silk and sparkly angelina fibers (wool was processed by myself from raw: picked, washed, dyed, combed and blended before spinning). These were then plied together as a 2-ply, but then were re-spun in the opposite direction to a multi-colored merino top that I also hand-dyed. The resulting yarn is similar to a crepe construction, which has lots of interest since 2 plies are wrapping around 1. It’s one of my fave ways to ply yarn, giving it lots of interest and fun in the design. Yarn enthusiasts will look closely at this yarn knowing there is something slightly different, but might not be able to put their finger on what makes the yarn so unique.
