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 varying shades of Cream, Dusky Pink, and Grey with lovely silky Tencel and soft Angora accents. The stripes of color are a medium length, and are 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 Super wash Merino wool is soft and felt-resistant
  • The Tencel (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds shine and a gorgeous drape
  • The Angora adds cloud-like softness and incredible warmth
  • The Nylon adds great durability to the blend.

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.

How Was This Yarn Made?

To create this Yarn:

- I spun up a lovely Superwash Merino/Tencel blend Hand Dyed by Spinaway Farms.

- I then blended complimentary batts on my Drum Carder with more Superwash Merino, Tencel, Angora and Nylon.

The finished yarn was inspired by the pastel color-play of Ambrosia Salad at potlucks as a child!
