I finally got around to winding these off of the bobbins. I don’t remember where I purchased the fiber. I think it is Crown Mountain Fibers. I’ve lost the tag so I don’t know what the color way is either.

Specs:

  • superwash merino
  • spun & plied on Watson Marie
  • chain plied
  • 250 grams
  • 2 skeins, 884 yards
  • 1,604 ypp

Maybe another vest?

Not quite the yardage of the other half brick.

I separated the orange into dark and light. I plied the dark and light by themselves (bottom right and left) and together (top). Now I have three different oranges for shading with embroidery.
