*Swatch pictured is knitted on Size 5 needles*

 - 41% Hand Dyed Romney Wool, 26% Silky Ramie Fiber, 18% Super soft Alpaca Wool, 15% Tussah Silk

- Each skein is 112 yards. 

- This is a One of a Kind, Variegated 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 subtly self stripe through Navy, Teal, Royal Blue, Lavender, and Tan, with lovely silky White Bamboo and Ramie accents. The stripes of color shift quickly, 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 Romney wool is durable and moisture wicking
  • The Alpaca wools are beautifully soft and warm
  • The Tussah Silk adds shine and a gorgeous drape
  • The Bamboo Fiber (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds durability and a lovely sheen.

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 beautiful Romney/ Alpaca/ Ramie blend Hand Dyed by Inglenook Fibers.

- 1 paired it with companion Rolags I made on my Blending Board combining 4 accent colors of Romney wool with some Tussah Silk for shine.

The finished yarn was inspired by the rainy weather we always get here in the northeast during April :)
