Deep cranberry reds, magenta, rusty oranges, greens and a bit of teal blues are handpainted on this "70's Merino wool. The dyer describes it "70s Merino that is so silky and soft- like kittens!- and is from non-mulsed sheep. It was a total joy to spin and is lovely soft!
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 the beautiful PNW 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. 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.
