Lots! Lots and lots and lots and lots…
This is the purple shetland fibre that I dyed in my second attempt at dyeing, plied with the various blue/purple/teal/green/angelina fibres that I carded together. This measured up to be around 700 yards of somewhere between lace and fingeringweight yarn. The purple has dulled down the brighter colours somewhat.
I had ideas of making a lightweight cardigan, knitting a thin yarn on big needles and weighing the cuffs and edges down by adding beads. I’m not so sure now, this might become a wide stole, maybe based on a feather and fan stitch. I tried a swatch, just to see how it knit up.
absolutely stunning colorway and looks so soft!
