Not to Be

I wasn't too sure about this yarn from the start. I thought the colour combination probably had too much contrast to work well as a marle yarn, but I decided to give it a go anyway. Then somehow I ended up with more yarn on my bobbin than I'd anticipated, so when I went to ply it off using the usual shortcuts I have for samples I ended up with a handful of snarls. At that point I stopped.

Time to step back, take a deep breath and let it sit for a while. Perhaps I can cut it up and card it into a different colour combination.

let me see if I get this... your not happy with the high contrast in the blue/white. And your not happy with the way it plied together.
The pile on the right looks ok. Is that yet to be plied?
The colour on the right looks a bit like bakers twine... I am sure it doesn't feel like bakers twine.

Well that just proves my point! It's mid-blue; pale blue-green and pale apple green. And it looks like blue and white bakers twine. The bits on the right are what I managed to ply off before giving up on the snarls. It's merino.
