twenty-fifth skein

1 oz Ashland Bay merino wool top in magenta
47 yards
Singles spun at 40 wpi
Two ply spun tightly and then cabled (plied again) to make a strand 10 wpi thick with a very interesting texture.

Was very happy that I put in enough twist in the cable to make the skein hang in a proper circle, with no need for corrective blocking.
