New Lace Yarn!

Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks - Moody Blues

Yarn Specs

Fiber: 3.5 oz (100 gm) Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks, Moody Blues colorway; 1 package of bombyx/merino, and 1 of tussah/cashmere, spun onto separate bobbins and then plied together (I still have some leftover singles on a bobbin)
Drafting method: semi-worsted
WPI: approximately 28 wpi (I was lazy and used the spinner’s tool instead of actually wrapping and measuring)
Yardage: 770 yds
Yarn Classification: 2 ply; this equates to 3,250 ypp, which is definitely in the lace weight category.

I had a plan for this yarn when I started, but unfortunately, I can’t remember what it was now. It was definitely lace. It was definitely for >500 yds, which was why I went stash diving for the second package of Moody Blues colorway, even though it has different fiber content. Sheen, drape, softness, and a slight halo. What more can a girl ask for?
