[spinning] Thread Plied Yarn

I whipped up a skein that's a little different than the rest I've made:

Sparkle Yarn


A single plied with thread. SPARKLY thread.

Here it is a little blurrier. This is closer to what it looks like in real life- white with pretty sparkles.

I love it. Not sure what the yardage is or wraps per inch. Not even sure I have enough for a hat. I wasn't sure this technique would work but I just HAD to try it. And the nice part was that after I plied, the yarn was balanced. I didn't need to wash and whack it against the side of the tub.

I can't wait to see what it looks like knit up!

OMG!! That came out so well! Super nice. You could make a sparkly hat. Sparkly ear-flaps FTW!!
