- 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 Rust, then move through Mauve Pink, Orange, Gold, Brown, Lavender, and then finish with Deep Purple before moving back through the gradient and finishing the skein with Light Rust again. The stripes of color are long and heathered, with lovely silk and Bamboo accents; 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 Silver Haunui wool is beautifully warm and moisture wicking.
  • The Merino wool adds softness and squish to the blend.
  • The Silk adds durability and a gorgeous shine.

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 gorgeous braid of Silver Haunui Wool Hand Dyed by Inglenook Fibers.
  • I paired it with companion Rolags I made on my Blending Board combining 8 accent colors of Merino wool with some Silk for shine.
  • I then plied the two together, careful to maintain the gradient.

The finished yarn was inspired by the rich warm tones of the desert as it meets the cool purples of twilight!
