Bulky weight yarn, handspun wool yarn, handspun art yarn, handspun merino yarn, handspun merino wool, handspun chunky yarn, multicolor
This yarn is hand spun on my traditional Ashford spinning wheel in my home studio. The wool is a mixture of the finest chocolate merino, dyed merino in pink, teal, blue, lavender, indigo and cream and some deep dark Wensleydale x Lleyn fibre from last years shearing.
It is beautifully soft and therefore I would suggest hand wash in warm water only.
There are two skeins of this yarn. The following details are for both skeins together.
* 99yd 93m
* 4.7oz 132g
* 8WPI = Bulky weight yarn
The beauty of working with art yarn, is that you don't have to be an amazing knitter. Really the yarn is the show piece so simpler stitches and techniques work best, for example a simple scarf, blanket, cushion cover. If you you can knit or crochet a square, you can fold it in half, sew up two side and make a clutch bag or cosmetic bag . Great idea for a pressie!
People have often asked me what they can make with their art yarn, so I created a board on Pinterest with examples of simple and mostly free patterns to give you some inspiration. Check out my 'Art Yarn Creations' board and follow me for more ideas on Pinterest
