- This is a One of a Kind, Self-striping, 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 Purple, Lavender, White, Tan, and Brown with lovely silky Ramie accents. The stripes of color are long, and 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 Corriedale and Cormo wools are beautifully soft and warm.
  • The Romney wool is a harder wearing wool that gives durability to the blend.
  • The Ramie Fiber (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds shine, and a gorgeous drape.

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

- The Romney Fiber came from a happy sheep just north of NYC whose fleece would have gone to the landfill, had I not saved it! I had the fleece processed by a family run mill, and I hand dyed it myself for your crafting pleasure!

How Was This Yarn Made?

To create this Yarn:

  • I made two kinds of Rolags on my blending board.
  • One in a purple to white gradient and the other in a brown to white gradient.
  • I spun these rolags end to end and chain plyed them together.
