My sister K. brought me a lovely skein of un-messed-about-with yarn from New Zealand. It’s “double-knit” weight, which looks like U.S. sport weight to me. No idea of the yardage, but it’s 200 gms, and the label says 5 hanks would do for a 44″ sweater in stocking stitch. Any guess-timates, fiber friends?

I’m going to think a while about what to do with it… In the meantime, I’m having a hard time resisting the temptation to stick my nose into it and inhale. Sheepy goodness.
