This skein was created with a 6 oz. bag of bits and pieces of different wools, although almost all is Romney wool so I'm listing it as such. I arranged them in a way that I thought would make a fun skein!
Rich autumn colors......purples, golds, cranberry reds, mustard golds and just a bit of dark browns for great constrast. Lots of fun barberpoling in this great skein of handspun yarn!
Romney is a sturdy wool....good for just about anything where you need durability! From the dyer's notes: "It’s a lambswool, so softer than the adult of this breed that I dye, and much fluffier. It’s crisp, bouncy, and full of life. At 28-29 micron, as opposed to the 35 of the adult, it’s a nice wool for many uses, like sweaters, mittens, socks." And with the oversized skein there's a bit more yardage for a larger project too.
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. 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.
