- 50% Super Soft, Hand Dyed Merino Wool, 50% Hand Dyed (by me!) Superwash Merino Wool

- Only 1 Skein left at 105 yards.  Hurry before it's gone!


- 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 Green, Blue and Yellow with lovely Red and Orange accents. 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 Merino wool is beautifully soft, warm and moisture wicking.
  • The Super wash Merino adds durability to the blend. Because of the super washing process, it's felt resistant, and makes it more stable 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 some Superwash Merino Wool using a low immersion technique.
  • I paired my hand dyed fiber with a beautiful Merino braid Hand Dyed by Malabrigo.
  • I spun half of the fiber in large chunks, and the other half 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 colors of the Great Green Macaw Parrot I saw on my last trip to the Bronx Zoo!
