- 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 Indigo, Dark Green, Brown, Gold, and then finish with Taupe before moving back through the gradient and finishing the skein with Navy Blue again. The stripes of color are long and heathered, and there are lovely Mulberry Silk, Tencel and Sparkly Firestar 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.

*This estimate is dependent upon the pattern you choose.

Fiber Content Properties

  • The Polworth wool is beautifully soft, warm, and moisture wicking.
  • The Mulberry Silk adds shine and a gorgeous drape.
  • The Baby Alpaca adds extra softness.
  • The Tencel (a silky eco-friendly plant fiber) adds durability to the blend.
  • The Firestar adds a lovely subtle sparkle.

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 8 beautiful Gradient braids Hand Dyed by Inglenook Fibers.
  • I split each braid into 8 pieces for each of the 8 skeins. I then spun them in order and plied them together, careful to maintain the gradient.

The finished yarn was inspired by the muted Blues, Greens, and Browns that I associate with the blustery Winter Wind whipping through the trees, reddening cheeks, and whistling in your ears!
