This fun skein of handspun is full of warm chestnut browns, rich mustard yellows, vibrant purples and pops of sweet spring greens and is handpainted on lovely Organic Polwarth/Silk. Polwarth is a soft fiber similar to merino but with extra poofiness and the added bonus of this fiber being Organic is a plus. Then add to that a bit of Silk and you have decadence at it's best! This skein is amazingly soft and luxurious. Knit it up into a wonderful gift for someone special or even for yourself. I think it's begging to be worn around the neck?
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.
