Such humble beginnings! This yarn wasn't anything special on the cone, not particularly nice to look at but not too bad to work with. But after washing, it became a whole different yarn! It bloomed and fluffed up so nicely and smells fabulous. I actually only bought one cone, which should have 150 grams of yarn, but there ended up being just over 170 grams on that one cone. I managed to judge the cast off almost perfectly and have just a few metres left.
It was kind of silly making this in April because it was months and months before I could actually use it. The yak/merino blend isn't as warm as alpaca, but close.
