Item details

This eye-catching yarn contrasts a bulky wine-colored single with a fine wheat-colored single to great effect. It was originally created for a close friend who wanted a pair of customized gloves made with handspun yarn - I loved her idea so much that I made a big batch of it!

The red single is comprised of two fiber sources: a solid maroon wool and a subtly heathered maroon wool.
The brown single likewise has two elements: yellow and tan Polwarth wool, which were both hand-dyed by me.

When knit, the yarn creates a playful knobbly fabric that is very soft, especially after being blocked. Perfect for hats or gloves!

Weight: Bulky
Needle size: US 9-10 / 5.5-6 mm
Length: 260 yards / 230 meters (total of three skeins of varying sizes)

This yarn is 100% wool.

Hand wash and lay flat to dry.

Let me know if you'd like me to wind the skeins into center-pull balls.

Thanks for visiting my shop!
