Super chunky super lar getting and spun art yarn. This yarn is massive at 235g 85m 3 wpi. A lot of yarn for any project. The core is hand dyed hand spun herdwick from fleece then dyed and core spun over with merino wool, angora, faux angora, bamboo, firestar and auto wrapped with lurex from sparkle. The additions of coordinate novelty yarns to add interesting textures, then cotswold shearling locks added for that bit of extra show, and the whole yarn spiral plied with a fine wool and lurex.
Art yarns are a long process from start to finish. From selecting the right fibre, sorting, dyeing, combing, spinning each component, it all takes time. Something a machine cannot do is select and spin these yarns, each one is completely different. The joy of art yarns is that no matter how advanced technology becomes, they cannot take away from the skill and patience needed to create art yarns.
Hand wash cool then drip dry. Can be felted by the buyer if they wash hot with soapy water, so could add to felting work.
All our fibres are either from our own animals or sourced from homes as dedicated to rearing livestock in as caring a manner as we do.
