- 50% Hand Processed and Hand Dyed (by me!) Romney Wool, and 50% Corriedale Wool.

- Only 2 skeins left at 122 yards. Hurry before they're gone!


- 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 Reddish Brown, Green, Taupe, and Gold. 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 Corriedale wool is beautifully soft and warm.
  • The Romney wool is durable and moisture wicking.

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 processed the fleece myself, and hand dyed it for your crafting pleasure.

How Was This Yarn Made?

To create this Yarn:

  • I made Rolags on my blending board using Romney fleece that I hand dyed using a low immersion technique.
  • I spun these rolags end to end and then plyed them with a Corriedale wool I purchased at the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival last fall.

The finished yarn was inspired by the colorplay of light and dark earthy tones in the clastic sedimentary rock we know as sandstone!
