*Swatch pictured is knitted on Size 5 needles*

- 100% Super Soft, Hand Dyed (by me!) Super wash Merino Wool

- 4 skeins available - 1 at 115 yards, 3 at 122 yards. Choose your length at checkout.


- 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 shades of Blue, Teal, Pink, Brown and Tan. 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 Superwash Merino wool is beautifully soft and warm, and due to the super washing process, it's more durable during wearing and cleaning. Wool is also known for its moisture wicking properties.

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

How Was This Yarn Made?

To create this Yarn:

  • I hand dyed a braid of Superwash Merino wool top using a low immersion speckled technique.
  • I broke up half the fiber into large pieces, and the other half into smaller pieces for spinning to create more interesting color-play.
  • I then spun and plied the fiber together.

The finished yarn was inspired by the colors in my happy place, the beach!
