This is a huge skein and the equivalent of a skein and a half at 6 oz. and with lots of uninterrupted yardage for your fun knitting project! So many fun and cheerful autumn colors......cranberry reds, deep purples, rich golds, bright magentas, forest greens, rusty oranges, and bits of soft icey blues for contrast and all handpainted on lovely Polwarth. Polwarth is a soft fiber similar to merino but with extra poofiness and a bit more squish factor. Knit it up into a wonderful gift for someone special or even for yourself. This skein would make the most lovely fingerless mitts or mittens for the upcoming cold weather!
Last photo shows the size difference between this skein and a regular 4 oz. one. The smaller skein is not included in this sale.
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.
