- This is a One of a Kind, Ombre Self-striping, Hand-spun yarn created by me with great love and attention to detail on my Louet S15 spinning wheel.
- This is a Gradient Skein: When worked up, each skein will start with Light Pink, then move through Sky Blue, Seafoam Green, Grey, and then finish with Lavender. The stripes of color are long, and heathered, with lovely silk and Bamboo accents. The yarn moves gradually and smoothly through the color shifts, 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.

Fiber Content Properties

  • The Romney wool is durable and moisture-wicking
  • The Angora is cloud soft, and incredibly warm
  • The Tencel Fiber (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds shine and a gorgeous drape.

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

- My Angora fiber is sourced from Luna, the adorable English Angora Bunny lovingly cared for by my sister in upstate NY.

- The Romney Fiber came from a happy sheep just north of NYC whose fleece would have gone to the landfill, had I not saved it! I had the fleece processed by a family run mill, and I hand dyed it myself for your crafting pleasure!

How Was This Yarn Made?

To create this Yarn:

  • I Hand Dyed some Romney wool using a gradient technique.
  • I then made batts by blending the Romney on my Drum Carder with some Angora and Tencel Fiber.
  • I spun up these batts separately, careful to maintain the gradient, and then I plyed them together.

The finished yarn was inspired by the color play of the costumes for 'Airs,' an iconic dance choreographed by Paul Taylor!
