Item details

This super soft and smooshy thick and thin yarn is handspun from my own kettle dyed recipe. It's a semi-solid shade of chestnut brown with gentle variations colors.

Merino fiber
Single ply
50 yards
2.5 oz.
WPI: varies widely but averages 3-5
Color: Chestnut, hand painted by me

Every skein of handspun yarn is unique and variations in the yarn are to be expected and are part of the beauty of the product.

Yarn is packaged in 60" skeins and wound into a hank. If you would like your skein wound into a center-pull ball at no charge, please leave a note at checkout.

Care instructions: Be aware – despite it’s bulky size, this yarn is delicate because it’s a single ply spun from 100% wool. Improper handling will lead to felting. To keep your projects looking their best, I suggest gentle hand washing with tepid water and a wool-safe detergent. Allow project to air dye. Avoid rubbing or agitating or using hot water as the yarn WILL FELT AND SHRINK.

Due to the soft and puffy nature of this yarn, I would not suggest it for items that will have hard, everyday wear.

I do my very best to represent the true color of the yarn but colors may vary between my monitor and yours.
