This squishy, poofy skein of handspun is full of all the purples and lavenders.....with a bit of warm tans for contrast. It's handpainted on a base of Merino. This fiber is noted as "a Merino wool grown on the Falkland Islands. The Falkland fiber we usually spin is a mix of different breeds combined to make some of my favorite fiber. This one is all Merino. It’s very soft (21-ish micron) and plump and fluffy with a silky hand." This was a delightful spin and the skein if full of soft fun!
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.
