Soft shades of teals and gray, and just a bit of warm tan browns for contrast in this lovely skein of handspun. It's handpainted on a fiber base of Superwash Blue-Faced Leicester. And with the convenience of Superwash this will be the perfect skein of yarn for so many projects especially small people knits that might end up in the washer.
Knitting with Handspun yarn is such a delight and Blue Faced Leicester is my all time favorite fiber to spin and knit with. It's sturdy yet soft and is perfect for many projects with just a bit of nice drape. For many it's next to skin soft and it's my first choice for baby and children's knits as well as for adults.
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.
