This skein of Shetland/Silk handspun is full of deep, rich autumnal colors: all shades of reds, golds, browns and bits of bright yellow for contrast! There's a lot of variety in the softness of Shetland that I've spun and the addition of 30% silk makes this quite soft... and it was a delight to spin. These rich colors will knit up to give you a wonderful and sturdy finished project. It would make a wonderful pair of cozy warm winter mittens for yourself or a cherished gift for someone special.
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. 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.
