- 6 skeins available - 5 at 110 yards, 1 at 123 yards. Choose your length at checkout.

- 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 subtly self stripe through Navy, Maroon, Fuchsia, Teal, Kelly Green, Lime Green, and Gold, with lovely silky Bamboo and Ramie accents. The stripes of color shift quickly, 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 Romney wool is beautifully warm and moisture wicking.
  • The Merino wool adds softness to the blend.
  • The Ramie and Bamboo Fiber (both silky, eco-friendly plant fibers) add durability and 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 beautiful Romney/ Merino/ Ramie blend Hand Dyed by Inglenook Fibers.
  • I then paired it with companion Rolags I made on my Blending Board combining 6 accent colors of more Romney and Merino wools with some Bamboo Fiber for shine.

The finished yarn was inspired by the fashion of my favorite decade, the free-lovin' 70's :)
