Handspun yarn is a true delight to work with; watch the colors undulate and make your work sing! If you've only ever worked with commercially spun yarn, you'll find that using handspun will bring out a new joy in your craft.
4 oz/100 g 144 yards/132 m 70% UK Shetland/30% Tussah Silk 3-ply Aran Weight (8 wpi)
3-ply yarn is plump and round, and is best suited for cables and knit/purl texture knits. The yardage here is perfect for a hat, mittens, thick slipper socks, and other accessories.
This Shetland/Silk blend is truly unique; the wool gives the yarn body and the silk gives a wonderful sheen. Shetland is one of my favorite wools to spin, and blending with silk results in a sumptuous yarn perfect for small, special accessories.
