- 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 Dark Red, Fuchsia, Orange, Yellow, Pink, and then finish with Sky Blue. The stripes of color are long and heathered, and move slowly and smoothly between colors. There are lovely textural Sari Silk and Tweed accents, and shiny Mulberry Silk and Bamboo 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 Mulberry Silk adds shine and a gorgeous drape
  • The Recycled Sari Silk adds lovely textural pops of contrasting color.
  • The Bamboo Fiber (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds durability.
  • The Tweed adds another layer of 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 8 different custom wool blends Hand Dyed by Inglenook Fibers.
  • I split each color into 10 pieces and arranged them in a gradient color scheme.
  • I then spun them in order and plied them together, careful to maintain the gradient.
