This is a One of a Kind, Self-striping Hand-spun yarn created by me with great love and attention to detail on my Louet S15 spinning wheel.
When worked up, each skein will self stripe through Teal, Pink, and Mauve with beautifully shiny Bamboo and Silk Accents. The stripes of color are a medium length, and very heathered which makes a delightful complexity of color depth in your finished project.
This yarn is perfect for adding excitement to your own unique crocheting, weaving or knitting creations! 

What Can I Make With This Yarn?

Each skein of my Hand Spun Yarn is enough to make a Beret or Fingerless mitts*. Two skeins are enough for a Hat, Gloves, or Cowl*. Three or more are enough for a Shawl, Scarf, or mixed with your favorite solid color yarn, a Sweater*!

Hand Spun is great for making Shawls, Gloves, Hats, Scarves, and Socks. My Hand spun works particularly well as the yoke of a color-work sweater, or in the Nightshift Shawl Pattern.

*This estimate is dependent upon the pattern you choose.

Fiber Content Properties

- The Alpaca wool is beautifully soft and warm.

- The Blue Faced Leicester wool is a stronger fiber which adds durability to the blend.

- The Silk and Bamboo (a silky eco friendly plant fiber) add shine, and a gorgeous drape to your work.

This yarn will be a joy to work with and to wear!

How Was This Yarn Made?

To create this Yarn:

- I spun up a lovely self striping Alpaca wool Hand Dyed by Drowning in Pretty.

- I plyed that with complimentary Rolags I created on my Blending board combining 4 colors of Hand Dyed Blue Face Leicester Wool, 2 colors of Bamboo fiber and some undyed Silk.

I've always thought the inside of Abalone shells are one of the most gorgeous displays of color in the world, and my inspiration for this yarn was trying to recreate that in wool:)
