- 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 Purple, then move through Neon Pink, Orange, Yellow Neon Green, and then finish with Light Blue before moving back through the gradient and finishing the skein with Purple again. The stripes of color are long, very heathered, and move slowly and smoothly between colors; 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.

Fiber Content Properties

  • The Organic Polworth wool is beautifully soft, warm, and moisture wicking.
  • The Mulberry silk adds durability, shine, and a gorgeous drape.

This yarn will be a joy to work with, (and to wear!)

How Was This Yarn Made?

To create this Yarn:

  • I spun up 6 gorgeous Polworth Wool/Mulberry Silk blend braids Hand Dyed by Inglenook Fibers.
  • Each braid was dyed individually to create a gradient of color.
  • I took a small piece of each braid and spun it up in order to maintain the Gradient effect.

The finished yarn was inspired by the nostalgic feeling I get when thinking about the bright neons of the 80's!
