*Swatch pictured is knitted on Size 5 needles*

- 38% Hand Dyed, Super Soft Merino Wool, 36% Tencel (a Silky Eco Friendly Plant Fiber), 14% Ethically Sourced Angora, and 12% Nylon.

- Each skein is 125 yards.

- 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 Green, Olive, Lavender, and Pink with lovely silky Tencel and Angora 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 Merino wool is beautifully warm and moisture wicking.
  • The Tencel (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds shine and a gorgeous drape.
  • The Angora adds cloud softness.
  • The Nylon adds durability to the blend.

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 beautiful Merino/Tencel braid Hand Dyed by Spinaway Farms.
  • I then paired it with companion Batts I made on my Drum Carding combining 4 accent colors of Merino wools with some Angora, Nylon and Tencel for shine.
  • I spun both separately and plied them together.

The finished yarn was inspired by the soft pinks, purples and greens of perennial plants peeking through a blanket of snow!
