Cotton Candy

This delicious yarn was spun from my own drum carded blend of wool in pink and white, with burgundy Merino, shimmery highlights of silk, gold iris sparkle for a warm rich glow, touches of blue-lilac banana fiber. All plied with random soft coils and many clear and pale pink glass seed beads, strung on the plying yarn--a thin mercerized cotton in pink.

The result is a thick and thin 2 ply that averages around 7-8 wpi. 82 yards, 4.4 oz. I think I'd choose my US 11 needles or larger, and go for a somewhat loose, drop-stitch style scarf to show off the curls and beads. In the last picture I circled the beads in bright green, so you can get an idea of just how many there are. They're too subtle to photograph well.
