May/June AllSpunUp Fiber Club. 4 oz superwash merino, 360 yards of n-ply. In an effort to lessen the pain and tedium of n-plying, I split this into 2 parts. It helped. Another factoid: pre-wash: 410 yards. This lost 50 yards. I knew skeins shrank but the amount was shocking. Part of it may be due to my loose plying, giving the singles room to pouf. But the yarn is perfectly balanced. The colors were some of the most beautiful I've had, Like malachite. Sadly the orange bits didn't translate.
