The hank of flax is spun and I now have a skein of linen
which is a whopping eight ounces for 508 yards of sport weight yarn!
I plan to either knit or crochet a market bag with it.
The yarn plied pretty smoothly-
it was hard to ply more loosely than I usually do
because I didn't want to end up with kinky or wiry yarn.
This is soft which is surprising but not like wool!
I ended up with a perfectly balanced skein
which was a wonderful outcome!
The yarn hanging straight like this instead of torqued
is proof of the balance between plying (twisting the two singles of linen)
and the original twist of the singles.
I enjoyed this project very much!
