*Swatch pictured is knitted on Size 5 needles*

 - 55% Super Soft, Hand Dyed Superwash Merino Wool, 45% Tencel (a Silky Eco Friendly Plant Fiber)

- 4 skeins available - 3 at 120 yards, 1 at 140 yards. Choose your length at checkout.

- 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 varying shades of Purple, Pink, Blue, Yellow and Orange with lovely silky Tencel accents. The stripes of color are a medium 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 Superwash Merino wool is beautifully soft, warm, and moisture wicking.
  • The Tencel (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds durability, shine, and a gorgeous drape.
  • Due to the super washing process, the Superwash wool doesn't felt - which gives it more stability 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 spun up two beautiful Superwash Merino/ Tencel blend braids Hand Dyed by Spinaway Farms.
  • Each Braid had been hand dyed separately, but with complimentary colors.
  • I spun each braid separately and plied them together.

The finished yarn reminded me of the bright yellows and oranges of sunbeam dancing along the pinks and purples of a parasol!
