One batt down

I finished the monster batt! Yes, one of my new ‘Big Batts’, this one is merino, silk and a bit of flax.

I loved spinning this and I love the result. I chain-plied the yarn and I spun it from one end of the batt to the other. I have a subtle tweedy gradient going on.

It’s a 3 ply, light fingering yarn, you check out the beginnings of this looong spin here.


I have no idea what to knit with it!

I reall like the tweedyness, the little specks of colour and the subtle colour shifts. I also like the slight crispness that the flax brings to it. I have 200g, I’d guess maybe 800 – 1000m?

I must swatch it, maybe simple lace cold look good or lace/cable combo perhaps.
