I've got 4 balls of Shepherd-Cynthia Helene merino superwash 99yds/50 g ; size 5mm/US 8 recommended for a gauge of 18 st x 24 rows.

How far will nearly 400 yds go? What could I make with it?

Suggestions, please :shrug:

THis chart will give you an idea of how much yarn you need for an item per the yarn weight.

Thank you for that link. What a nifty tool!

It doesn't look like I would get anything out of the yardage I have, but I shall troll patterns to see.

If you are a small size, I'm sure you could make the Anthropologie Inspired Capelet in a worsted weight. You have 200 grams of worsted, which will go a bit farther than 200 grams of bulky, and it took me less than my 2 100gr balls of bulky to do that.
