The first skein of yarn is from one of my fun batts called We're All a Little Mad...It had a lot of silk noil in it along with firestar. I spun it in a fairly fine single then chain plied the yarn to get this 3 ply yarn. I have to say, chain plying the yarn with all of the textures from the noil was very interesting so I ended up with a few thick spots but not too many. I envision this yarn in a striped shawl. Can you just see those beautiful colors and texture in between a lovely solid in a contrasting color? As always, I wished for more yardage. I know I have three plies but goodness, does that third ply suck up the yarndage. I ended up with 144 yards.
