Just needs the ends run in now

Now, this yarn I did remember to take in my carry-on and finished it on the plane East. White cashmere,¬†spun into a braided tube, and it was a splurge a few years ago that I had been saving for some future bride. The reason for spinning it that way is to give some strength and structure to it¬†without having to add the friction of any extra twists you don’t have to: you want to keep it as soft as it deserves to be.

Did I mention another niece is about to get married?

Ahhhhem. Don’t forget the address rule, she says in a stalker like tone.

Gorgeous and I imagine it is unbelievably soft and nice!

Could you please explain “spun into a braided tube”? I certainly like the sound of more structure without more twist.
