*Swatch pictured is knitted on Size 5 needles*

-94% Hand processed and Hand Dyed (by me!) Romney wool, 3% Mohair, and 3% Bamboo

- 3 skeins available: 2 at 100 yards, and 1 at 102 yards. Choose your length at checkout.


- 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 Grey, Baby Blue, Pastel Pink, Yellow, and White, with lovely Mohair and silky Bamboo accents. The stripes of color are a medium length, and 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 Romney wool is beautifully springy, warm and moisture wicking.
  • The Mohair adds softness to the blend.
  • The Bamboo Fiber (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds durability and shine.

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 hand dyed some Romney fleece using a low immersion technique.
  • I carded the fleece after it was dyed.
  • Then I created Rolags on my Blending Board blending the fleece with some mohair and bamboo for shine.
  • I spun these rolags end to end and chain-plied them.

The finished yarn was inspired by a beautiful pastel blues, yellows, and pinks of a Santurce Baseball cap from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
