*Swatch pictured is knitted on Size 5 needles*

- 74% Super Soft, Hand Dyed Merino Wool, 18% Ethically Sourced Angora, 5% Mohair, 3% Firestar - a Sparkly Nylon Fiber.

- Each skein is 110 yards.

- 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 Grey, White, and Pink with lovely Mohair, and Sparkly Firestar accents. 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

  • The Merino wool is beautifully soft and moisture wicking.
  • The Angora adds cloud softness and incredible warmth.
  • The Mohair adds a lovely shine.
  • The Firestar (a sparkly nylon fiber) adds durability and a subtle sparkle.

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

How Was This Yarn Made?

To create this Yarn:

  • I blended some Merino Wool, Angora, Mohair, and Firestar together on my Drum Carder to make batts.
  • I paired them with some Merino that I purchased at Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival this past fall.
  • I spun both up separately and plied them together.

The finished yarn was inspired by one of my favorite color combinations: grey and pink!
