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.
