its says they’re bfl, but i swear they acted more like merino.  now i think i’ll let the twist set overnight and then ply them when i get home tomorrow, or tuesday.  i’m supposed to go to a union thing tomorrow evening…:(  and i forgot to get the car serviced, so i have to do that some afternoon, somewhere…
