I started out dyeing 1 ⅛ oz (31 g) because I wanted enough yardage to make a whole project with. I calculated the yardage/weight from my first silk hankie spinning attempt, which is how I arrived at this number.
This silk made my spindle a little sticky. I'm hoping that I'll be able to wash this off. I'd read that some silk can be gummy a bit, and that can make it difficult for the fiber to take dye. These hankies took all of the dye that I added, but are still a bit less smooth than the pre-dyed hankies I purchased from knitpicks.
The pictures are making the yarn look more of a teal when it is a blue with only a hint of green. There is great depth of color, and I am really excited to knit a project with this yarn. How much did I end up with? 329 wraps * 4 ft/wrap = 1316 feet = 438 yards.
I recently purchased a WPI (wraps per inch) tool so I could get a better estimate on the yarn weight was creating. This yarn has is ~35 wpi which makes it clearly lace weight.
I decided to call this yarn seafoam silk. I love how stunning it looks wrapped up in a skein. What do you think I should make with it?
