I looked at the Mary Maxim website, and didn’t see that particular yarn listed. I’m guessing it’s a discontinued line.
I did find this information on determining the gauge of handspun yarn It seems it should work the same for any yarn. :??
I hope this isn’t abusing copyright laws to copy the info here. If it is, I apologize, and request a Moderator to edit out the following part of my post (my link above will take you to this same info). :shifty:
Using a standard ruler, start wrapping your handspun yarn around the ruler, being careful not to overlap the strands or create gaps between them. Once you’ve wrapped your yarn around an inch of the ruler, simply count the number of wraps you made.
Then, use the chart below to find the closest corresponding gauge, yarn category, and needle size that will work for your yarn. You can use this information to match your handspun with the best pattern.
