View Full Version : calculating yarn wo a label? Nepal Recycled Silk

I want to make the bag below with that recycled silk from Nepal. I just bought a big ball of it at a store for $12 but I just noticed the label doesn't list the yardage.

It's big and heavy as heck but only one ball. Here's the pattern at Knitty.com. How can I tell how much is there? Weigh the ball? at the post office or something??? :think:

Hm.... nobody know how? Looks like I might have to go down to Seaport Yarn, andrea has a scale and I saw her weigh yarn before...

I went to the site, but it won't come up.

What did you find out?

have you gone to yarndex.com to see if that yarn is listed? It might show the yeild for it as well.
