- 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 Orange, then move through Gold, Light Peach, Lavender, Navy Blue, Gray, and then finishes with Brown before moving back through the gradient and finishing the skein with Orange again. The stripes of color are long and heathered, with lovely silk and Flax accents; 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.

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 to the blend.
  • The Alpaca adds extra softness.

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 beautiful Merino/Tussah Silk/Flax blend Hand Dyed by Inglenook Fibers.
  • I then paired it with companion Rolags I made on my Blending Board combining 6 accent colors of Merino and Alpaca wools with some extra Tussah Silk for shine.
  • I spun both up and plied them together, careful to maintain the gradient.

The finished yarn was inspired by the colorplay of the The Great Plains: the pastel pinks, purples and blues of the looming mountains, contrasting with the warm yellows, oranges and browns of the plains!
