*Swatch pictured is knitted on Size 5 needles*

- 78% Super soft Merino wool, 11% Tencel, 11% Banana Fiber

- Only 1 skein left at 134 yards, Hurry before it's 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 subtly self stripe through Maroon, Red, Grey, Blue, Yellow, and Brown with lovely Silky Tencel and Banana Fiber Accents. The stripes of color are a medium length, and 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 Merino wool is beautifully soft, warm and moisture wicking.
  • The Banana Fiber and Tencel (both silky, eco friendly plant fibers) add durability, shine, and a gorgeous drape.

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

How Was This Yarn Made?

To create this Yarn:

  • I made Rolags on my Blending Board combining a beautiful hand dyed blend of Merino and Tencel with some natural undyed Tencel and Banana Fiber.
  • I spun these Rolags up for my first ply, and plyed it with some lovely combed Merino Wool Top from the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival.
