i was aiming for worsted weight but didn't quite make it. i used the lowest ratio to spin the singles and the highest to ply. the yarn is nice and bouncy at least.

i tend to forget about BFL as it's kind of a vanilla option, but i do really like how much sheen it has, and gale's art has especially nice BFL.

  2. Beautiful yarn! I like BFL better than Merino. Merino is so flat, and I like shiny. Even a little luster in fiber is better than flat.
