Like proper knitting yarn.
That was my first thought when I wound off this yarn into a skein. So white, so soft, so uniform and neat.
It was worth taking a break from the wheel, worth taking my time at every stage, if this is what I ended up with. I loved those first nobbly attempts at yarn making. But I love this even more...
