I've been wanting to spin up a marled yarn for awhile and finally decided to combine this gorgeous natural brown Coopworth and undyed Mixed BFL for a fun marl! Coopworths were first imported to the United States and Canada in the late 1970's and are still a rare breed in North America. Coopworth fleece is popular with handspinners who find the wool easy to spin. The Mixed BFL is a combination of both white and brown BFL that's blended during the processing to give it a soft creamy look. I spun up 4 skeins in this batch and plan on some fun socks for myself and a friend.
Handspun yarn is, by nature, one of a kind and imperfect. All yarns are spun by me on my sweet spinning wheels in my smoke-free but dog friendly home in rural Utah and then soaked in a lovely lavender wash, dried and re-skeined and are ready to knit your treasures. My finished skeins are measured after drying and yardage is approximated to the best of my ability. Your gauge may vary when working it up. I always recommend swatching for gauge and colorfastness when working with hand dyed products. Some dye run-off may occur with the initial washing of hand dyed goods though my handspun is soaked before drying to minimize that.
I do my best to accurately photograph my yarn but monitors may differ. All my photos are taken outside in natural light. Please contact me with any questions before you purchase the yarn.
I'm happy to take orders for custom spinning for that special project. I have a large group of fibers you can choose from or you can purchase fiber elsewhere and have it sent to me. You'll pay for the cost of the fiber and the custom spinning.
