I received this silk/rayon blend weaving yarn at 6800 ypp.
These are ~ 8 oz tubes, totaling about 2.5 lbs. of yarn. I have been looking for something similar to this for some weaving experimentation. This yarn represents many (near) future hours of weaving and dyeing entertainment.
I mailed Tim postage reimbursement over the weekend. Today I went shopping for the charity donation:
So in my own strange calculus, 2.5 lbs. yarn equals:
- 55 single servings of oatmeal
- 30 single servings of cold cereal
- (8) 7 oz. cans of tuna
- (8) 18 oz. cans of soup
- 15 washcloths
- 6 pr. of women's socks
- 12 pr. of men's socks.
Usually we talk about transactions being a win-win situation. I would call this a win-win-win situation. Tim is relieved of yarn he will not be using. I have gained yarn that I have been looking for. The soup kitchen patrons get items that they need in the tight economy.
Tim has more stuff up for destashing. Click on the link above and look around his blog.
Meanwhile, I have some sampling to do!
