Item details

I handspun this two ply yarn from 5.61 ounces of Indie dyed Polwarth fiber. Polwarth is a squishy soft wool and not scratchy at all.

I split the braid into two and spun the singles end to end and then plied them together. This yarn is mostly a fingering weight but has little areas where it reduces for a few inches to a lace weight. This yarn has a nice ply twist to it.

Colors in this yarn are hard to photograph. The first picture is the most accurate and was taken under my OttLite. The others were taken outside in the shade and appear to light, but in the sun they appeared too dark and looked like brown? Colors in this yarn are a pale pink, a light sage green and a tan (probably where they dye mixed). It is a very "soft" colored skein.

A picture of the tag is include in the photos along with my spinning calculations from Spinzilla. I measure all my handspun after they have been removed from the knitty knoddy and washed and dried to get the most accurate count. Approximately 644 yards.

I feel that his yarn is a light fingering to fingering weight yarn. This skein has a pretty tight twist to the ply. I think it would make a lovely garter stitch shawl along the lines of a Martina Behm pattern or Elipses by Romi Hill. Not sure how it would wear in socks.

I would recommend hand washing all handspun in cool water

Beautiful yarn, so light and soft. I'm rethinking what I want to make with it, just so I can show it off.
