- This is a One of a Kind, Ombre Self-striping, Hand-spun yarn created by me with great love and attention to detail on my Louet S15 spinning wheel.
- This is a Gradient Skein: When worked up, each skein will start with Navy Blue, then move through Red, Rust, Light Blue, Orange, Gold, and then finish with Lime Green. The stripes of color are long and heathered, and move slowly and smoothly between colors. There are lovely Tussah Silk, and Flax accents; which makes a delightful complexity of color depth and texture 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, warm and moisture wicking.
  • The Tussah Silk adds shine and a gorgeous drape.
  • The Flax adds durability and texture 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 8 beautiful Merino/Tussah Silk/Flax blend Gradient braids Hand Dyed by Inglenook Fibers.
  • I split each braid into 8 pieces for each of the 8 skeins.
  • I then spun them in order and plied them together, careful to maintain the gradient.

The finished yarn was inspired by the Bright Greens and Blues of Summer changing into the darker Reds and Oranges of Autumn.
