Yarn for wedding shawl

Here’s the yarn that I’m going to use to knit my wedding shawl/stole.

I bought this yarn from knitwitches yarn in Wales. http://www.knitwitchesyarns.co.uk/

It is seriously gorgeous yarn. I have some of her hand dyed yarns too and they were fabulous to knit with. So when I wanted to knit myself something for my wedding, I thought of using the natural silk/cashmere yarn.

Here’s a close-up before I wound the skein.

Here’s how I used my laundry basket to help keep the skein from tangling.

Here’s the ball after I wound it.
