I wanted my yarn to be enough for something, for something that I can use, or wear.
If I spin 5-800 meters of laceyarn from the same expensive braid that would make a shawl, a lacey shrug, or even a light sweater, wouldn't it?
Edited to add the details: 95 or so grams of corriedale wool. Spun thick and thin, plied with pure silk thread.
about 60 meters of coiled yarn.
