Mihaela's custom yarns are known for their softness, quality , drape, beauty and wear and tear friendly. The name of "yarn cakes" came from the fact that when are winded they look like cakes. Usually 1lb of yarn contains between 1100 to 1400 yards. Is enough to make a small or a medium size sweater. The fact that the yarn is winded in such a big ball you have the advantage when you knit not to worry of connecting ball after ball and worry how to burry all that ends. That will be very little "clean up". We try not to twist the yarn when wind, because we want to keep it as flat as possible.More twisted the yarn less soft that it is. A little bit of everything in the combination of creating the yarns keeps the yarns looking young forever and gives the necessary proprieties we are looking for.We hope you enjoy them and please take the time to enjoy every stitch.
