- 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 Magenta, then slowly move through Orchid Pink, Light Pink, Light Green, Lime 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 luxuriously springy and warm.
  • The Tussah Silk adds softness and a beautiful sheen.
  • The Bamboo Fiber (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds 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 hand dyed lovely braids of a Targhee/Tussah Silk/Bamboo Blend using a Gradient Hand Painting Method.
  • I spun each braid in a way that maintained 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 coming together of two opposites on the color wheel and a smooth transition in between them!
