- 57% Super Soft Hand Dyed Merino Wool, 37% Hand Dyed Tencel (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber), 4% Alpaca wool, 2% Firestar (a super sparkly Nylon Fiber)

- Only 3 skeins left: 2 at 100 yards, 1 at 110 yards. Choose your length at checkout.


- 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 Brown, then move through Maroon, Peach, Lime Green, Ballerina Pink, and then finish with Cerulean Blue before moving back through the gradient and finishing the skein with Brown again. The stripes of color are long and heathered, with shiny Tencel and sparkly Firestar 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 Merino wool is beautifully soft and warm.
  • The Tencel (an eco-friendly plant fiber) adds durability and shine to the blend.
  • The Alpaca provides added softness.
  • The Firestar (a super sparkly nylon fiber) catches the light in a really lovely way.

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 Merino/Tencel blend 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 Alpaca and Firestar for added complexity of texture.
  • I then plied the two together, careful to maintain the gradient.
