- 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 Plum Purple, then slowly move through Red, Fuchsia, Lavender, Pink, Light Green, and then finish with Kelly Green. The stripes of color are a long and heathered, with lovely Silk and Bamboo 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 Targhee wool is beautifully soft, warm and moisture wicking.
  • The Tussah Silk adds shine and a gorgreous drape.
  • The Bamboo Fiber (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds durability.

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 lovely blend of a Targhee/Tussah Silk/Bamboo using a Gradient Hand Painting Method.
  • I spun the fiber in one long single, careful to maintain the gradient, and then chain plied it.
  • This produces a durable 3 ply gradient yarn with long stretches of color.

The finished yarn was inspired by the colors of my favorite summer fruit: Watermelon!
