Item details

A rainy afternoon of color is captured in this marled laceweight handspun 2-ply yarn, designed to knit up in a self-striping gradient moving from dark blue through light blue and into greys. Spun up on my Lendrum wheel from a hand-dyed blend of 70% Blue Face Leicester wool and 30% silk from Frabjous Fibers in the Webs exclusive colorway "Looks Like Rain", then plied with 3 strands of a complimentary shade of exquisite 1/45 cashmere with a 1/600 silk binding from Loro Piana, this one of a kind treasure will fill many a rainy afternoon with delight.

Weighing 7.25 oz and measuring 753 yards, this laceweight handspun self-striping art yarn will naturally range in gauge between 7.5-10 stitches/inch, and the use of a US 0-4 needle or an A-D crochet hook is recommended. This yarn would make a spectacular shawl, delicious and drapey lace, could be handwoven into a glorious gradient scarf or worked into an even larger project!

This skein was spun with sacred intention in a tobacco-free home, and it has been set and rinsed with a bit of organic lavender conditioner to keep the fibers supple. It has been stored near cedar. Handwash gently to avoid felting, agitate away to encourage it.

Add a note to your order, and I'll gladly wind your yarns into a center-pull ball.

I ship USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation, and I will also happily work with you to create a custom skein.

Thanks again for looking!


FAQs

I would be delighted to work with you to create a custom fiber blend, yarn or consult with you on the fiber arts project of your dreams, just ask!

All yarns have been properly set by immersion in hot water, and should be pre-shrunk and ready to go! Please look at the fiber content to determine if your yarn might felt when agitated, but a great default assumption is that handspun should always be hand washed with care.

Totally possible, but I would need some advance notice! Convo me with any such questions or concerns!
