The 4 oz Challenge

(L to R) Hello Yarn “Air” (merino/tencel) SCF “Hades” (Polwarth/tencel) and Spunky Eclectic “Algae” (Merino/Bamboo)

Here it all is braided together, so you get an idea of how it will look all spun up :)

I am hoping to be able to make it into an Aran weight, but, as there is a lot of protien fibres in there, I expect it will want to go skinny ;) The challenge is to spin a yarn to make 4 oz, and then write a pattern and publish it, both to be done in the months of August and September.

How the yarn turns out will dictate what I design... but I expect it will be a hat...
I like Hats :)
