Each hank was actually sorted into two skeins in side so each gave two 2 oz. balls of yarn. Other than being a little dusty it seams all good and well and fine. Since I am still new to knitting and usually would only collect vintage threads for crochet I am new to collecting vintage wool yarn. Would this amount of yarn be enough to make a small/medium sweater for an adult female ( ie. me). I guess I could fined other colors to mix with it such as cream or something liek that to make sure there was enough yarn to complete a project. The labels only gave the weight not the yardage so I have no idea how much yardage is in each hank.
the label had some care instructions on it so I thought I would post them here encase I loose the labels ( which they all still had complete skeins not partials). Also thought it might be useful info for someone else who has vintage woolens to take care of them.
- Hand wash, using lukewarm water and mild soap-flakes or a detergent recommended for woolens.
- Squeeze gently-always support garment in hands while washing. Do not wring.
- Rinse Several times in lukewarm water until every trace of soap is removed.
- Add a few drops of white vinegar to the last clear rinse water.
- Roll in Turkish towel to remove moisture. Unroll at once.
- Lay flat in original shap to dry-away from sun or heat
