Yes, it's the same weight and nearly the same color as the last yarn I bought. I bought it as a happy birthday and thank you to the dyer. Elise is the person behind Nerd Wars. I appreciate all the work she continues to do to keep the game going. On top of all that work, she's got a yarn business called Ewereka Yarns. There are a series of yarns that salute the first war. This one's called Invicible and I'm not sure which team it represents. I picked it because I liked it. 50/50 silk/merino. Mmmmmmmm.
