*Swatch pictured is knitted on Size 5 needles*

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

- Each skein is 115 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 self stripe in a mix of the following shades: Pale Yellow, Lime Green, Light Pink, Fuchsia, Magenta, Lavender, and Chocolate Brown. The stripes of color are fairly short in 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, warm, and mosture wicking. Because of the super washing process, it's felt resistant, and makes it more durable during wearing and cleaning.

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 some 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 one of my favorite color combinations pink and green - I wanted to try and capture the feel of a blooming flower!
