I really like how this fiber spun up. I'd say it is a bulky weight yarn. It is nice, thick, soft and fluffy. I think I'll use this to knit a hat or maybe mittens. I don't think there is really enough yardage for a scarf.
I really like the color too. Purple has always been one of my favorite colors and this one is nice and rich. It is almost black in places. It makes me think of nice plump juicy blackberries.
My father is coming for a visiting today and will stay through Sunday. He's taking some type of continuing education class for some business license he holds in this state; so he will be out a good portion of Saturday. I'm going to try and get in a quick visit to a local Fiber Festival while he is in class. The festival starts Saturday at 10:00 am and this is it's second year. If you are in this area the festival is being held at the Averasboro Battlefield Museum located at 3300 NC Highway 82.
