- 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 varying shades of Red, Pink, and Orange. 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

This Merino wool is truly one of the softest wools I've encountered.

Wool is well known for its warmth and moisture wicking properties; so, it keeps you insulated yet cool at the same time.

This yarn will be a joy to work with, (and to wear!)

How Was This Yarn Made?

To create this Yarn:

  • I spun up some beautiful, super soft Merino Wool Hand Dyed by Malabrigo.
  • I spun half the fiber in large chunks, and the other half in small strands so when plied together, the colors mix together in new and exciting ways throughout the skein.

The finished yarn was inspired by the intense red and orange colorplay I associate with the beating heart in Edgar Allen Poe's famous short story of the same name!
