- 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 self stripe through multiple shades of Red, Pink, Lime Green, and Purple. The stripes of color are fairly short length, moving smoothly and quickly from color to color. The stripes 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 Merino wool is beautifully soft, warm, and moisture wicking.
  • The Superwash Merino wool, due to the super washing process, is more durable during wearing and cleaning. Which means this yarn is both squishy, and durable:)

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 Merino braid Hand Dyed by Malabrigo
  • I paired it with a braid of Superwash Merino I Hand Dyed myself using a low immersion technique.
  • I spun one braid in large chunks, and one braid in small strands so when plied together, the colors mix together in new and exciting ways throughout the skein.

The finished yarn was inspired by the bright Pinks and Greens of the English Rose garden!
