Item details

This is a striking handspun, slightly thick and thin wool singles (unplied) yarn.

I took commercially carded black shetland wool and tussah silk blend fibre and spun it on my old Dutch Edammertje spinning wheel, adding in shredded brightly coloured sari silk fibre as I went along. The resulting yarn is soft enough to wear next to the skin - there is enough here to use as an interesting trim on a larger project..

This skein weighs approx 35g. It has approximately 65m. The WPI count (wraps per inch) varies between 11-14 (approx DK weight).

If you have any queries about this yarn please do not hesitate to send me a message.

Cool handwash only unless aiming to felt.

Additional policies

The yarns I produce are painted in small batches with fibre reactive or acid dyes and there may therefore be some variation between skeins. Please order enough to complete your project.
I try to use photgraphs that show the true colour of the yarn but please be aware that all computer monitors vary and therefore you may not see exactly what I see here!
Although I rinse all yarns until the water is clear it is advisable to wash separately for the first few washes. All weights and meterages are approximate and as stated by my suppliers.
Custom orders are welcome - please open a conversation. I usually request a deposit with the balance payable when the finished item is listed.
