'Odessa' was the name of a packet ship that sailed from Dublin to New York, during the famine years. I chose that name because this yarn is essentially 'Red, White, and Blue'. Spun in Northern Ireland using a lot of Northern Ireland lambs wool, this yarn celebrates an Irish/American theme. I have speckled it with white using bamboo and angelina, which adds a hint of sparkle (visible in one of the pics if you scroll through) to represent the 'stars' of the American flag.
A 2 ply yarn, both plies are hand spun by me, using: merino, silk (lots of silk), angelina, bamboo, Romney lambswool, Wenslydale lamb-locks (all hand dyed) and added bits of novelty yarn to give sparkle and texture to your finished project.
This is super-soft and spongy, spun gently thick-thin on purpose.
I have loaded 25g of this yarn onto vintage weaving mill bobbins that came from the North of England. Original colour coding from the mill. Smaller spools are not included in this listing, just the 3 larger ones, with the yellow on one end.
