Yarn Candy Monday - Superfine Finery

2. May 2011 08:47 by Jobo | 0 Comments

On my quest for the Haapsalu Shawl..... I've been looking at various fine yarns, to try and find some suitable product to try a prototype shawl before I set out to spin my own and make one entirely from scratch!  I found this soft, white, superfine beauty from Webs!  It's Filatura Di Crossa - Centolavaggi... a 2 ply, very fine, Italian superwash Merino lace yarn.  How fine?  100 g has 1531 yards... hopefully an acceptable amount for a very Nupp embellished full sized Haapsalu Shawl.  Time will tell... I guess :)

This stuff is so light and fine... it practically floats in your hand!  The winding process was fairly straightforward (i.e. no knots or messes) but because of the fantastic yardage - took the better part of an hour!  The Merino is very bouncy and luxurious :)  I hope it works out fine for the desired project.
