This fiber was part of a Advent Calendar Spin-a-Long with the Nest Fiber group and included 12 little packets of different colored fibers. Each was a surprise and could be spun any way you wanted. I chose to pair up all the packets and add in some semi-solid silk blends for 3 Extra Large skeins. This is the first of 3.
Such fun colors.....cool icey blues, rich cranberry reds, deep pinks, rusty oranges, gorgeous purples and lavenders, magenta....in this great mega size skein of wonderful handspun. It's mostly worsted weight but some areas are thinner. I spun this fiber thick and thin and it has a lot of bits of texture.....it has a wonderful organic vibe! And Squish......oh the Squish! And with the oversized skein there's a lot of 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 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.
