This handspun yarn is wonderfully soft and squooshy, while a worsted twist gives the fiber stability and character. This knits up quickly, and would make a gorgeous, warm cowl or hat. Handpainted pinks and purples remind me of early morning just before the sun starts to peep over the horizon. 100% merino fiber was spun and plied on my Golding™ dropspindle and gently soaked to set the twist.

Some FAQS about the unique fibers I use:
1-Is it REALLY corn yarn? Yes, it's one hundred percent corn. Apparently, they soak the fiber from the husk using a high heat process, then extrude the fiber to create the plies. It's a process similar to making rayon, using a renewable resource.
2-How do corn yarn bibs wash up? You can machine wash COLD and tumble dry low. I washed all my swatches this way, and there was no shrinkage, fading or bleeding of color. DO NOT use an iron on corn yarn, though, it will burn.
3-Does corn yarn take food away from people? No, since the fiber comes from the husk, the yarn is not made with the portion of the corn that supplies food.
4-Is corn yarn really eco-friendly? Although corn yarn does require a high heat process, it is made from a waste product that would normally end up in a landfill. Less trash is good for the environment, and good for us!
