- 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 subtly self stripe through Lime Green, Yellow, Maroon and Navy Blue. The stripes of color are a medium length, 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 Merino wool is beautifully soft and warm.
  • The Corriedale wool is springy and moisture wicking.
  • The Tencel Fiber (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds durability and shine.
  • The Silk adds 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 made Batts on my Drum Carder combining 3 colors of Corriedale wool with some Tussah silk and Recycled Sari Silk for shine and texture.
  • I spun these batts up for my first ply.
  • For the second ply spun up the beautiful Hand Painted Merino/Tencel blend from Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool.
