- 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.

*This estimate is dependent upon the pattern you choose.

Fiber Content Properties

  • The Merino wool is beautifully soft and warm. Wool is well known for its moisture wicking properties, which keeps you insulated but cool.
  • The Bamboo Fiber (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds durability and shine. Bamboo is also known for its breathability, and antibacterial 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 some Merino/Bamboo blended top using a gradient painting technique.
  • I then broke the braid up it up into several pieces, careful to maintain the gradient.
  • Then I spun them all up individually, and plied them with each other.

The finished yarn was inspired by the contrasting colorplay of some bright pink roses I found at the edge of the browns and blues of the New Jersey Shore.
