Warhill: 140 yds, 2 oz/ 60g. 3 ply. Just a little off-white. Managed to get rid of 95% of the grass bits, learned about dirty fleece. On a scale of 1 - 10 of elasticity this is about a 5. Feels and spins like merino, could be worn next to the skin. Could be sock yarn but wouldn't last well.

E.F.: 110 yds, 80g, 3 ply, Aran weight. The second cuts I got tired of pulling out felted into little balls that contributed to the lofty bounce of this yarn. The only yarn I've spun that was more elastic was a CVM that was really beset with noils. This is my best effort in making a Sarah Swett yarn. A real pain in the neck to clean and spin, partially due to it's being black. The bronze tips merged right in. Gorgeous yarn, very wearable, probably won't pill. Trying not to go back and buy the rest.
