This is two skeins I spun from HipStrings Black Opal.
There is just shy of 1200 yards two ply. I also have a bit of singles left over that I may chain ply at some point.

Ooo. So dark and intense. That black opal is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing the link. And I'm always impressed with huge numbers like 1200 yards! How do you even keep count! Thanks for sharing!
