Working on the Yarn

I am almost finished making a Two Ply Yarn from green British Top shot through with Tussah silk. Silk colors are green, purple, red and blue.
Should have it finished by the end of the week, then I need to wash and set the skein, only then will it be ready for sale and offered at my Etsy Store.
Here you can see me Plying the yarn.

Here is some Blue Faced Leicester just finished up into a two ply skein.

Here you see the same skein still on the skein winder. Can see the width of the yarn via the penny. Sadly I do not knit so I not sure how to let people know the size of the needles they would need. Is something I need to look into.
